Default Unfair Grading

So, my Economics class. I'm not doing well in it. It's over now actually. My grade is a 55%. However, he told us he is strictly taking the grades of the tests, and averaging them out for the grade.

My test grades are 62, 94, 42, and 74.

Add that up, you get 272. Divide by 4, you get a 68. This is how he said he's doing the grading. Is it the grade I wanted? No. But it's technically passing.

However, this does not equal 55, which is the grade he gave me.

He brags about a 90% failure rate in his classes. No wonder everyone fails. He just gives random grades. *******.

You're definitely leaving out details man.

I'm not going to be an a-hole and laugh at your mistakes. It seems like you are in a sorrowful state, and everything around you is f*cking awful. From your mother, to your professor, to your self. I don't know what to say. These are times where men resort to drugs and prostitutes. I only hope you take control and pull out of this misery.

you should bring it to his attention and even go to his office hours to address it. If you are really right about this, then take it to your ombudsperson if he wont address it.

This but more details would also help.

Is there class participation?
Are the tests weighted?

just noticed that 272/5 is ~55%. maybe he did everyones grade wrong? maybe he doesnt like you? Howd you pull a 94 and a 42 in the same class? when I see students do that, I know they slacked.

High school is a breeze man...

I guess if you're a really terrible test-taker that can be frustrating though.
