When I go to the Innis registrar office, and they asked for my student number. I know that they can just type it in, but are my marks and GPA displayed on their monitor right there.
I am just always so curious about it. My marks are not that great this semester, and I just wanted to know if they actually judge you on it. My GPA isn’t as high as I’d like this semester, and I get embarrassed thinking that they know my marks whenever I need to go do my OSAP or any registrar related matters.
The fact that the registrar has access to your records shouldn’t come across as a surprise to you the registrar is supposed to be your first stop for any academic problems you’re encountering. If they didn’t have access to your marks, how would they ever be able to help you?
I’m sure the people at the registrar office won’t judge you for your marks. They are nice people. On top of that, they were students themselves at one point too. I’m sure every one of them has had a semester or two during which their marks dropped a bit. They’re only human, right?
Don’t worry about your marks. Everyone feels burnt out once in a while! In any case, I’m sure you’re not the only person with low marks this semester.
In any case, what’s the worst that can happen to you? A little wounded pride? I don’t think you should concern yourself with whether or not they judge you based on your marks. Instead, take advantage of their knowledge and expertise. Keep an open mind; perhaps they’ll give you some advice from which you’ll benefit from in the long run. You’re paying the University for their registrarial services, so you might as well take advantage of it.
Anyway, you can’t be as embarrassed as these guys.
