Are you familiar with these kinds of statements?
Professor Wiesenfeld? I took your Physics 2121 class? I flunked it? I wonder if there’s anything I can do to improve my grade?
I got a D in your class. Is there any way you can change it to ‘Incomplete’?I’m shy about coming in to talk to you, but I’m not shy about asking for a better grade. Anyway, it’s worth a try.
If my grade isn’t raised to a D, I’ll lose my scholarship.
If you don’t give me a C, I’ll flunk out.
If I don’t pass, my life is over.
