Getting a B+ in Calc 1 my Freshman year

Post by Ricoma1234 » Thu Dec 05, 2019 2:53 pm

Hi all,

I'm currently a junior in undergrad and I have around a 3.8 GPA so far. I've gotten A's/A-'s in all my Physics classes and math classes (Calc 2 and 3) except for calculus 1 which I got a B+ in. Will this B+ look bad to Physics graduate schools or will my A's in Calc 2 and 3 make up for the B+? Or will this grade raise a red flag as I'm sure there are plenty of applicants that excelled in all of their math classes? Thanks.

Don't worry about it. In higher level physics classes, knowledge of calc 1 is very much assumed. It would be impossible to do well in those classes without a servicable knowledge of basic integration. It won't matter as long as you keep a good gpa
