A professor stood before his class of twenty senior organic
biology students, about to hand out the final exam.
"I want to say that it's been a pleasure teaching you this
semester. I know you've all worked extremely hard and many
of you are off to medical school after summer. So that no one
gets their GPA messed up because they might have been
celebrating a bit too much this week, anyone who would like to
opt out of the final exam today will receive a 'B' for the test."
There was much rejoicing in the class as students got up, walked
to the front of the class, and took the professor up on his offer. As
the last taker left the room, the professor looked out over the
handful of remaining students and asked, "Anyone else? This is
your last chance."
One final student rose up and opted out of the final.
The professor closed the door and took attendance of those students
remaining. "I'm glad to see you believe in yourselves," he said.
"You all get 'A's.”
