Moment of truth

Tomorrow is the moment of truth - my last final (hopefully).

I have to get at least a 50% on it to pass, which is actually a lot harder than it sounds. The class average on the first test was 38% and on the second test it was 62%. Interestingly enough, of the 10 students in the class, I had the second lowest grade in the class on the first test and the third highest on the second one. I really have no idea what my grade is in this class after the curve is applied.

In short: I need a 50% or better on the final to get a C with no curve applied (I don't want to rely on a curve for a passing grade; I'd rather think of that as icing on the cake). If I can pull off a 75% or above I can actually get a B in the class, which would be awesome, but I'm not crossing my fingers.

EDIT: I think I passed...won't find out till, well, whenever my professor posts my grade.

EDIT #2: I think I'm going insane not knowing. The next few days will probably be hell on Earth. If you know me personally, don't be surprised if you get a lot of text messages or phone calls; I need to do something to stem my anxiety. Human interaction of any kind seems to that within an acceptable margin of error.
