    Unjustified grade

    I got a C on my Theatre Scenery class. I am beyond pissed. I don't even know why I got a C. He even stated his class is very simple. You show him exactly what he wants and he'll give you an A. It's that simple. He doesn't grade unless you miss some stuff.
    We simply only had 2 projects (midterm and final) and a couple of small check ups of our progress.
    My first project I got a 495/500. For my final, I don't know what I got, but hell, I spent weeks on it stressing out on it. Building a 1/4 inch = 1 ft scale of Peter Pan set, which there's 5. Never have I really had to have such a big project that I pushed myself to do it. He says he doesn't grade by creativity, so even if my set turned out to be impractical, he has to grade on what is required. And he gave us the paper of what is required/graded on the project. I did EVERYTHING he said. I even double checked this time, opposed to my first project which is why I missed 5 points. And what do I end up with as my course grade? C. A lousy C that I know I don't deserve.
    I decided to even email my instructor for an explanation. That was a week ago and I have yet to get a reply, and I KNOW how much he checks his email. He always brought it up in class about emailing him.
    It's kind of a slap in the face when, you know, this is a required class for my school's theatre program. Like, what the hell do I even do? By now, the grade is already on ink, possibly not changeable.

    That sounds rough. Do YOU have any ideas why he would give you a C?? Even with the 495/500... O.O wow.

    Also, even though it's not THAT great, a C is still average and is acceptable.. You won't fail school or anything with that :o

    No, I have no clue. I only missed 2 days for that class, one which I know had a check up.
    Even if C is passing, it's not that great to have when you're a theatre​ major..

    Is approaching him in real life an option?

    Not really. I don't know where he is. He's an adjunct instructor at my college, so besides the days he has to be there to teach, he's never there.

    Approach an administrator within the school and sort it out with them?

    I'm sure if you have any half decent staff there they'l arrange a meeting or something.

    Are grades even disputable. That sounds so weird. It's like taking it up to court, but not really.

    I'm fairly certain in cases like this you can "argue" With the school about your grade. Atleast, that's what i hear from my teachers when they were in College.

    Oh wow! I so agree!
    I got a C- on my English Feature Article, and like I checked with the teacher over 4 times, and she said kept on saying that it was getting better.
    And my last draft, she said that I have met the criteria well, and that I should leave it and see how I go.
    Then her excuse for giving me a C- but telling me I was doing well was: your problem was too severe, to correct, and I assumed that it was too late to change.
    And I was like. ITS NEVER TOO LATE. YOLO. hahahah
    BUT OMG. I understand how you feel. Cheer Up! and I hope the best of the best for you!

    This probably has been resolved already, but you most certainly can argue your grades. If you feel a professor is being unfair to you, and you have substantial proof to prove that you followed his guidelines then you need to bring it to someones attention, that way you don't get judged when you transfer schools -- or even go into the profession itself; trust me, when you first graduate College they look into your transcripts, but as you build work up they don't do as much digging, anyhow if this has been resolved then I'm glad if it was settled in a manner acceptable to you, if not then that professor is a douche mang. College is so much different from High School, haha -- in High School whatever you wanted got done, but in College you have to argue about EVERYTHING, it's ridiculous, I've been having troubles at my school as well (so I took a break from it all for a short amount of time, while they settle themselves out).
