Are you frustratingly close to an A and need a small boost help get you there? Here are three tips on how to convince your teachers to round up your grade.

1. REVERSE PSYCHOLOGY: You need an increase of .3 percent? Argue for a decrease of .6 percent. This is sure to confuse teachers into rounding your grade up.

2. SHOW RESPECT: Get on their good side by showing respect. Use old English and call them “your majesty.”

3. APOLOGY LETTER: Use one of your supplemental essays on your college application as an apology letter where you can explain that your teacher deprived you of an A, and you are a victim of this “unfair” school system.
