Due to Kim Youngran law (김영란) no grades will be changed without an acceptable reason.

Please give me a higher grade” is not an acceptable reason.

Grading Policy Information
This letter is to inform you about the grading policy for both ELL 2035 and ELL 3044 class. If you are an exchange student or graduate school student this does not apply to you. If you are an exchange or graduate school student, please tell the teacher as your marking system is different from regular students.

이는 ELL 2035와 ELL 3044 두 강의의 학점 제도에 관한 내용을 알리기 위함이며, 학부생 대상으로 적용됩니다. 본인이 교한 학생이거나 대학원생이라면 다른 학점 제도가 적용되므로 교수에게 미리 알려주기 바랍니다.

These classes are graded on a 상대평가 system. This means that the marks are divided between:

두 과목은 상대평가가 적용되는 강의이며, 상대평가의 기준은 아래와 같습니다.

  • A+ and A (30% of the class)
  • B+ and B (40% of the class)
  • C+ and below (30% of the class)

Although the teacher would like to give all students an A+, CNU policy does not allow for this. Also note, there is a distinct between A+ and A, B+ and B and C+ and C.

모든 학생들이 A+를 받을 수 있다면 좋겠으나, 전남대학교 정책상 이는 불가함을 다시 한번 알려드리며, 아래는 각 학점 별 세부 채점 기준이니 다시 한번 확인하기 바랍니다.

  • 94 – 100% – A+
  • 90 – 93% – A
  • 85 – 89% – B+
  • 80 – 84% – B
  • 75 – 79% – C+
  • 70 – 74% – C
  • 60 – 69% – D+
  • 50 – 59% – D
  • below 50% – F

Therefore some students will invariably get a lower mark. This could happen even though all students in a particular class did well. Due to this system some students must receive a lower mark than others.

상대평가인 관계로 어쩔 수 없이 낮은 학점이 부여되는 경우가 발생합니다. 이는 본인의 성적이높고 낮음에 상관없이 전체 수강생 모두의 성적에 따라 상대 평가되는 것입니다.

If you get a lower mark than others, consider the following:

만약 당신의 성적이 만족스럽지 못하다면, 아래 사항들에 해당사항이 없는지 확인하세요.

  • did you do all assignments?
  • did you arrive to class on time?
  • were you absent for many classes?
  • did you participate in class?
  • 모든 과제를 수행했는지?
  • 수업에 지각한 적이 있는지?
  • 수업에 결석한 적이 있는지?
  • 수업에 적극적으로 참여했는지?

Reasons such as these listed below are not valid reasons to change a grade:

아래와 같은 내용은 학점 변경을 위한 타당한 근거가 되지 않습니다.

Please give me a higher mark, I worked hard”
“If I don’t get a B, I will have to do military service”
“Please change my mark, I need a scholarship.”
“I just want to let you know that I really put an effort and studied hard. And I want to ask you a favor. Can you change my grade B to B+”
“I would like to hopefully request that you change my B grade into B+”.

“저 열심히 했으니 더 높은 점수 주세요.”
“저 B 못 받으면, 군대에 가야 돼요.”
“제 학점 좀 바꿔주세요. 장학금 받아야 돼요.”
“그냥 알려드리고 싶은 내용이 있는데요.. 저 정말 노력했고 공부 열심히 했어요. 그러니 제 부탁 하나만 들어주시면 안될까요? 제 학점이 B인데, B+로 바꿔주실 수 있어요?”
“간절히 부탁드리고 싶은 것이 있는데요.. 제 학점 좀 B에서 B+로 바꿔 주실래요?”

Finally, a common request is to change A to A+, B to B+ or C to C+. If I changed all grades to grade (+) CNU policy would not allow giving only (+) grades (A+, B+, C+) and no regular grades (A, B, C) because it depends on 상대평가 system.

끝으로, 가장 많은 요청이 A를 A+로, B를 B+로, 그리고 C를 C+로 변경해 달라는 것인데, 만약 모든 학생들이 ‘+’를 받는 경우, 상대평가 정책을 따르지 않은 것으로 간주되어 행정적인 문제가 발생하기 때문에 불가합니다.

If you still feel like your mark is incorrect, make an appointment with the teacher and we will review your marks.

만약 성적 공개 후 여전히 본인의 학점이 정당하지 못하다 생각한다면, 교수와 미리 약속을 잡고 학점 평가 근거와 내용을 확인할 수 있도록 합니다.

Writing lab

If you need help with your English writing, Chonnam National University has a free writing lab for all students in 인문대3  308호.

This is a good opportunity to improve your writing skills outside of class.

Monday to Friday from 10:00am – 12:00pm.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 4:00 – 6:00pm.

It’s best to make an appointment with the writing lab, although you can just show up and ask for help.

By vs Until


Both until and by indicate “any time before, but not later than.”

Until tells us how long a situation continues. If something happens until a particular time, you stop doing it at that time.

For example:

They lived in a small house until September 2003.
(They stopped living there in September.)

I will be away until Wednesday.
(I will be back on Wednesday.)

We also use until in negative sentences.

For example:

Details will not be available until January.
(January is the earliest you can expect to receive the details.)

If something happens by a particular time, it happens at or before that time. It is often used to indicate a deadline.

For example:

You have to finish by August 31.
(August 31 is the last day you can finish; you may finish before this date.)

We also use by when asking questions.

For example:

Will the details be available by December?
(This asks if they will be ready no later than December.)
