Many students have worked hard for their Quarter 3 grades and want to continue working hard to raise their GPA or to improve previous quarter grades that they were hoping to fix in the upcoming quarter. By having pass/fail, this takes away the hard work of students and will hurt any hope of gaining/maintaining a high/well liked GPA. Some students, such as juniors or sophomores, are depending heavily on their grades for college. Their grades are their future. Pass or fail will limit/not show their capability of completing a course. With pass/fail, students who give the bare minimum could be seen the same as a student working day and night. Giving the same system to students who push themselves to the best they can be with the ones who don't push themselves at all is not fair. Yes, some students who go above and beyond might want the pass/fail option too which is why I'm saying letter grades should be an OPTION, instead of it not being in the listing of choices at all.
