Today, I had to do a PowerPoint presentation alone, since none of my group members showed up. I was given a big fat 0 for doing the presentation alone. It was worth 50% of my grade. FML

You should challenge that decision. It's not your fault they didn't show up. You shouldn't be punished for being the only one to make an effort.

You're really getting an education! If you are on a team of losers, you will fail regardless of your individual effort. That's how the real world works.

Tell the principal/dean. That should not be allowed as it is grossly unfair to you.

This is why I hated partner projects in school. They shouldn’t even be allowed

I hate them, too, but they are very popular with students. Everyone is familiar with the slacker (or free-loader) problem, but there's also a problem with control freaks. I always make group project work a small part of the grade.

It's to prepare you for the real world.
