No but I bet OP's parents will believe it since the OP thinks people here will If my kid tried that excuse on me, I would immediately call the school and find out if true. Then if it is, sue the living crap out of the school for ripping me off on my kids education, but if not(which is the case here), then I beat the hell out of my kid for lying to me and making me look like a jackass to his teacher
I have the same policy at my university (though it's not really dicussed much, it *was* mentioned a few times), which is why all our profs mark us mercilessly just so they won't have high-average-associated problems later on with the department head. OP, while I can understand your situation, you should still work harder. They couldn't have lowered everyone's grades THAT much... unless you were barely passing and that couple of % pushed you under 50%.
Where the hell do you go to school where a 50% is a passing grade? Do you get an A+ for spelling your name right? Sorry to sound condescending, I know it isn't your fault, but being able to pass on that low a percentage is absurd and the lowest I have ever heard of. Around where I am 60% is the average lowest passing grade you can get, and at my school 70% is the lowest.
Are they even allowed to do that?
"My class was too smart" is a fancy way of saying "I was too stupid"
