Got most of my term four grades today. Except for the Contemporary Concerns Study (CCS – a project course) which i know i’ve screwed up big time. Three low A’s and two high B’s so far (here in IIMB the grading system is weird. The letter grade is accompanied by a number grade which is a real number. For example, A can mean anything from 3.50 to 4.00! The topper typically gets 4 and then it goes down progressively).
Apart from the CCS, I’ve got 3.52 out of 4.00 this term (and my CG after 3 terms was 3.31). Feeling really happy. Now I don’t care what i get in the CCS.
I’m especially happy about this one course Financial Derivatives where the general grading is really bad. I had got 20 out of 40 in the midterm when the average was 27. Finally ended up doing pretty well in end-terms and put a 3.60!!! (when the median grade was 2.2).
For the first time in four years, I’m feeling proud of my grades. The last time I felt this way was in 3rd term in IIT when I’d put 9.46 after 2 terms of 8.75 (that was out of 10).
I got 2.79 in CCS. Much higher than expected. My term GPA is 3.4 (highest in four terms) and my CG stands at 3.33
