Still have a question, do all fastfood restaurants use vegetable oil for their fries?
And about college. If you fail a test, can you take it again? or do you have to compensate with other grades?
In the Netherlands you can take the test again for about 3 times(spread over 2 years).
Hmm....I'm actually not sure about fast food restaurants, but I wouldn't trust them! That's just me!
College I do know about though
The way our courses work here, most class grades depend on 2 to 3 tests. (1 or 2 midterms, and a final) Depending on what you're studying/size of class, etc, there may be other course work, essays, presentations, etc.
Anway, so each of those things would be worth a percentage of your grade. Most often if you fail any given part
of a course grade, you can still manage to pass the class by doing well on other parts. If you get a failing grade in the class though, you can retake it another term. In that case both grades will show on your transcript, but if the class is required for you then that's what you have to do. On the other hand, if you know ahead of time that you aren't going to pass a class, I reccomend 'withdrawing', which you can do until almost the end of a course. You receive a "w" as a course grade, but it doesn't affect your GPA, and of course you can still retake it.
All of this is assuming you're going to a public university? Someone can correct me if this is different anywhere else, but I have friends spread out around the country in school, and this is basically how it works for all of us.
Hope this answers your question! I'm sure it's not something you need to worry about anyway!
