how to convince your professor to let you retake your exam or give extra credit/boost your grade?

the semester is almost over

Update:

It's not like a major issue. I just wanted to boost my B to an A to raise my GPA overall

    Why do kids think that they can just keep taking exams until they get the grade they want or, even worse, expect a professor to just "boost" their grades?

    Exams are supposed to differentiate between candidates, not to give everyone a sheaf of As.

    How many times in the past did you go to your professor's office during hours and ask for help. If none, then you can forget a re-do. One thing that bugs professors more than anything else is students coming to them during the last few weeks of a semester and asking for an extra credit project or a re-do when they haven't asked for help before to avoid this problem.

    Well, it helps if your professor is male and you're a hot chick. If you work it right you might improve your score without even retaking it.

    While a professor might allow a re-take if you could offer proof of something else going on in your life that would make you test poorly--say you'd just gotten out of the hospital, or your father died--no professor will allow it just so you, and you alone, get a shot at an improved grade.

    As others have said, you had your chance on the test already. If you didn't do your best then, that's your problem.

    all you can do is ask. there's usually no redo on the exam once others have had a chance to tell you what problems are on it

    That would depend on the reason...did you have to attend a funeral? were you in the hospital?...

    Why should your professor let you retake an exam or give you extra credit if it isn’t offered in the course?

    It was your responsibility to prepare for the exam and you failed it. Learn from that, take the L, and move on.

    See if he'll help you out, if you buy him The Dave Clark Five album.

    It doesn't hurt to ask, the most is he can say is no.
