Saved By The Bell (Curve)

I dodged a bullet today in my Advanced Multivariable Calculus class. We got a chance to look at our second midterms today, and I was disappointed, but not surprised, to see that I scored only 25 out of 40 possible points on the test. I made one very stupid mistake that cost me four points, probably, but the rest of the missing points were because I didn’t know material. Fortunately for me, I was able to beat the curve anyway — the class average was another point lower than mine. I guess I am lucky in that my poorest performances are generally well within the mix of the average smart person, because there ain’t no dimwits among this group. Except, perhaps, for whoever the poor soul is who got the class low at 2 points. Hopefully this will provide me with sufficient motivation to study for the final, so that I actually learn all of the concepts I am supposed to get out of this class.
