    Exclamation Misc should I do this bonus project to get an A in the class? (reps)

    I have 60 % of assignments graded. Out of the 60% I have earned 52.8625% which equals 88.10%

    Remaining 40% is still being graded ( 3 projects)

    there's a bonus project that can add 2% total to grade.

    Professor emailed us this :

    If you are trying to decide whether you should do the bonus project, I suggest looking at the weighted grade (mine is 88.10%). This weighted grade currently accounts for 60% of your final grade. If your team submitted all the projects (and you contributed to all the projects), then this grade may increase but it is very unlikely that it will drop more than 3 or 4% (unless your projects were incomplete).
    I contributed and my team submit all the projects. So, I need an 89.5% in the class to get an A and remaining 40% is still being graded. I need to get 36.6375% out of the 40 to get an A.


    Now my question is there's a bonus project that can add 2% total to grade, and im trying to decide if I should do it. It's due tomorrow midnight. Or is my A already secured? Should I attempt it to be safe?

    yeah this all checks out.

    Always find it strange how much people focus on the grading aspects of a course instead of just learning the material, and getting the work done. In the amount of time you'll spend pondering whether you should do the bonus assignment (if any of this is true), the assignment itself could probably be completed. There is not enough info in the OP to know exactly if it'll help you or not. If it were me, and I was currently less than an A but borderline, and it were assumed that I was consistent in my work for the first 60% compared to the 40% ungraded, it would make sense to do the assignment.

    To/for me there is no harm/hurt in trying OP, it'll show & illustrate your showing willing

    Though if it's not mandatory don't go over the top with it - but still try and show effort in it and a-lign it to your main subject/subject of coursework - whatever that is/it may be braw?

    Good thread you have made btw - it's great to see novel/or and more "off the cuff" threads I think braw!
