How to get a Professor to change your grade
Have you ever wanted a professor to change your grade? Well we are going to tell you the three simple steps on how to do that. Getting a grade changed is something that every kid dreams of. You may need your grade changed to increase your GPA, or in more severe cases, you may need your grade to be changed in order for you to graduate. Sometimes, students may have obstacles for not getting a better grade such as problems at home, being lazy, or simply just not caring. The three simple steps to getting your grade changed are sucking up to the professor, bringing in food, and bribing the professor with money.
The first step you would want to take is to stop small, like sucking up to the professor and sweet talking him. You should raise your hand all the time, laugh at all his jokes, and even talk to him after class. You can also ask him for extra credit assignments and ask him if he needs any help organizing and cleaning his office. You may also want to take it a step further and try to grab a sympathy vote by telling him some problems you are dealing with or going through in your home and personal life and even confiding in him about a family member that has passed away. These are all ways that you can suck up to your professor.
Next, you should try bringing in food that your professor likes. Food is proven to put people in a better mood, especially if you have a class around breakfast or lunch. Professors love to eat. Sometimes when people don’t eat enough, they start to get grumpy and tired, so bring in some comfort food, such as chocolate, pizza, ice cream, and pretty much anything that the professor would want to eat. Pay attention to what he says in class, like if he happens to mention what his favorite food is and then just bring it in and watch him enjoy it.
Finally, the last step to getting the professor to change your grade...
