Autobiografía: Mi vida en corto

In this section, you will write a biography about yourself. You will put in practice the Spanish knowledge you learned during the entire Spanish course.

NOTE: All three extra credit assignments together are worth 1.1236% of your final grade. What is that means? If your final grade is:

  • 69% (D) to 70% (C)
  • 79% (C) to 80% (B)
  • 89% (B) to 90% (A)

FORMULA:

  • From the New Number deduct Old Number i.e. 90-89 = 1
  • Divide above number by Old Number i.e. 1/89 = 0.011236
  • Multiply the result by 100 i.e. 0.011236*100 = 1.1236%
