Can my professor fail me if I fail his final exam?





I just took my final exam today for one of my upper division classes and while I did study, it was pretty hard. I wouldn't be worried because I have an A in the class right now, but in his syllabus it says that if you do not pass the final you do not pass the class. We have only had short answer tests and essays in that class...all of which were worth 100 points, except for one that was worth 300. I got A's or B's on all of these. The final was worth 100 points and I don't think i did too hot...so will he still fail me despite the rest of the hard work I put into the class?

    You answered your own question. If the syllabus clearly states that you are required to pass the final in order to pass the class, then I doubt he will make an exception for someone who did well on the midterm exams. It is likely that many other people are in the same position as you in regards to the midterms.

    Yes, if you final exam is worth 100% of your mark, and you fail it, you can fail the class. However, if the exam is only worth 50% of your mark, then you will not fail the class.

    If you have an A right now I don’t see how it would be hard for you to do well on the final, at least pass it. It is what it is in the syllabus, I doubt he will make an exception for you because that would mean he would have to do the same for everyone else. You can try and talk to him, but professors aren’t that lenient especially since it was stated clearly in the syllabus.
