A good "C" and about three points below the goal of 65%.  Still,
with exams #1 and #2 combined we are right on target!

The average dropped quite a bit from exam #1 to exam #2; about 
6 percent points.  History tells us that this trend will continue 
and the question is how strong the trend will be.  Chemistry builds 
on whatever has been learned already and it is for this reason that 
students with low commitment levels will not succeed over time. So, 
you better make up your mind right now whether you want to take this 
serious. It's still time to make adjustments.  And who says that
history needs to repeat itself?  

Best, RG.
