Sociology 134 Grading Scale The most important thing to practically any student is getting good grades. The same thing goes for me. The way a grading scale is forced upon students has drastically shaped how we learn.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
