How many Q&A points do we need to get an A?

The syllabus says >= 2000 for an A. But I'm guessing 2000 is the cut-off to get an A-. Is it 2500?

2,500 points seems right to me for an A+. And I think it would say specifically that 2,000 points would mean an A-. Hope this helps

2000+ points means an overall A, and below that is B.

I don't remember him saying whether or not getting extra points would get us a better grade. I just remember him saying that we needed 2,000 points.

Just get all of the points, Avash. All of them. Or at least 2000. I'm not really sure.

The syllabus states that the B vs A cutoff is 2000 points.  If you earned 1995 points, would you expect to get an 85% in the category, the same as someone who earned 1505 points?  Everything above 2000 points is some flavor of A, but 2000 exactly would be an A-.
