When I got my Spanish midterm back, I was very, very surprised to discover that I had gotten a C. Now, I know that there are going to be some Dopers that are ready to jump on me for complaining about a C, but bear with me. Normally, I wouldn’t be all that upset; however, this was one of the easiest exams I have ever taken. I just knew I had done better than that. So after school, a friend of mine (who also thought she did better than her grade indicated) and I went to look at the exams. And, low and behold, the teacher’s answer key had been mistaken on at least ten questions, if not more. I just barely missed an A for the semester because of that midterm, and I think this will bump me up! The funny part is, she’s been using this same exam for years- and no one else ever thought to go back and look at it! :smack: Who knows how long this would have gone on, how many future years of classes would have gotten so much less than that grades they deserved because of the teacher’s error.
Mundane? Yes. Pointless? Of course. A must share? Sure, why not?
