Have you ever wanted to know how teachers grade their courses? Well for about 10 quids or cheaper if you split it amongst friends, you can dig dirt on your teachers grading habits. Why might this be imporatant? It’ll actually give you an indication of how hard you need to work your butt or if you should ever take the class. I’m not going to do a full review of the site, just on the actual features you care about. Continue reading to learn more.

A little background about this website, before myedu.com came about, the contents on this website use to be free. I don’t remember what the website use to be called, but myedu apparently took it over (don’t quote me on that). Anyway, somehow myedu has access to professor grading habits and now they’re capitalizing on it. But before you go blowing 10 quids, you might just want to bargain with your friends.

10 dollars for a whole year isn’t too much, but if you’re like most college students, you need to scrape by. My recommendation is to find a buddy or two who are willing to split the cost. I’m sure you can do that on your own.

Verdict:

I don’t know if I can give my blessing over purchasing these services. Now, myedu offers a lot of other features with graduation planning and useful academic management, but who uses that stuff anyway. Below is a image of the information your shown below when you look up a class and professor grade distribution. I only recommend buying this if you can get your friends to split the cost.
