Oklahoma student starts petition for final exam curve in honor of Baker Mayfield

College students quite literally will do anything to get a final exam curve.

Let’s take  Hannah O’Brien, for example, who started a petition on change.org to get University of Oklahoma President David L. Boren to give everyone a 6-point final exam curve in honor of No. 6 himself, Baker Mayfield.

I know what you’re thinking,  if she spent the time studying that she did making this petition, she wouldn’t need a final-exam curve!

But college final exams are hard (people forget that) and what Mayfield did as a two-time walk on was even harder. So, sure. Why not reward the student body, who has to be stressed out of their minds trying to figure out how to come up with money for Rose Bowl and possibly national championship tickets?

As of Dec. 15 at 11:20 a.m., O’Brien’s petition had over 3,000 signatures. The goal is 5,000.

She published an open letter to President Boren and the Oklahoma faculty that reads:

Dear President Boren and Faculty Members,

We, as students, believe in the power of the spirit winning the Heisman trophy brings to this university. This power unites us and makes us proud to call the sooner family our home. This monumental moment within the history of this university deserves to be celebrated. With that being said, we, as students, would like to petition for each professor neath’ this western sky to gift a 6 point curve toward each final exam in honor of the father of this university’s jersey number, #6. We appreciate your consideration and desperately hope you will preserve the spirit of Sooner Magic. Live On University, and may the natty be ever in our favor.


The Student Body of The University of Oklahoma

Finals week is nearly over for Oklahoma students, but Oklahoma’s football season is not.

Make the call, D-Bo.
