If 3.8 is 20% of the total points you lost, then you lost 19 points. How many total points were there?

I think you did your math wrong...
For the maximum point gain to be 3.8, that would make your original grade a 24, which I don't think is a "D"

What is a “D”? Lowest grade is a C-... after that it’s an F

No, it’s A-D, then F

There are different systems. My current system is only A, B, C, D, F, no pluses or minuses.

My previous school allowed pluses and minuses, but not A+ or C-. (C- is a typical grade to give to effectively fail a student without the administrative hassle of issuing a failing grade.)

I can see why the guy failed...

It would actually make his grade an 81. Also not a D, but I see that both of you are not so good at math.

x * 0.2 = 3.8; x = 19 points lost.

If the test is out of 50:

50 - 19 = 31 which is 62%;
31 + 3.8 = 34.8 which is 69.6%

Even if he only lost 19 points, based on the math, this dipshit didn't get a D, he probably didn't get an A again and is whining about it thinking we don't know how to check math

I don’t think your math is right. If you can get 20% of the lost points back and this equates to 3.8 points then it implies you lost a total of 19 points on the test which would make your original grade an 81%. So you got a B, not a D - congrats!

I'm a teacher, that's how it works. All the hard questions are worth more marks. it would be silly to make all the easy questions worth 10 points. I don't know how you study math, but practice makes perfect. It's the only way to learn math. better luck next time, don't blame the teacher. at least not entirely.

You only studied a little, not hard. You deserve it

Well, a D is still a pass! So you technically didn't fail. :D
