Compared to other schools SACs yours might be harder, so there is the chance it may get marked up. Do your best on the exam (aim high, A+).. if you do this then I would say a 40 and possibly 45+ is still achievable.
Don't let this mark bring you down, use it to encourage and motivate you to achieve higher!

GIVE UP, na only joking your chances are not shattered but it will make it harder. Keep in mind SAC's in psych are only worth 34% meaning your chances of getting 45+ is relying on a solid A+  for both exams, this will result in pulling your sac marks up. Remember there's always another sac to recover your C. All the best

ERA sac on visual perception :( ????? LOL we did a poster and a test..

The poster was on Gestalt priciples, depth cues and constancies..

The test was on most of the things the poster didnt cover..

In psych dont worry about sacs too much as they are only worth 17% for unit 3.. However, the exam is worth 33% for unit 3. Therefore if you do good on the exam and possibly get marked up (lol not sure how it works) your SS should still be achievable... Hopefully for you it is..I want 44!!!

I wouldn't say its over but if you got a C on a SAC I'd start to question whether you could manage to go through an entire two exams and drop very few marks. Work hard and make sure you know the course like the back of your hand and maybe you'll still be able to get that 45.

No, your hopes aren't shattered, but as people have said, it should definitely be an incentive for you to work really hard, especially when you are aiming for a 45.

And relax, it's just one SAC. Counteract this score you're not happy with by doing really well in all your other assessments. This one SAC is only one tiny bit of your score, if that makes sense.

Good luck.

What really matters isn't so much your grade but your ranking. How are you going compared to the rest of your class?

why does it matter so much about 'your ranking'?
