Help, I made a mistake. Am I screwed for IB?

I was taking my Trig math quiz today, made a mistake when calculating circle revolutions/minute in unit conversion; probably got an 89. Thoughts?

No way you have a shot man, you blew it. There's kids born at target hospitals lined up with 2020 SA gigs at tier 1 day cares (think Kindercare). Good luck.

UPDATE - Ended up scoring an 80. Overall grade dropped from a 91.38 to an 89.76. I'm at risk of getting a B, but still have multiple quizzes yet to be handed back, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed

Probably consider doing community college and trying to jump to a semi-target, if you can even do that. Id look at a non-front office role and just hope you can make a lateral move at this stage.
