What's the most effective way to ask a professor for extra credit after bombing a midterm exam? Is there still a chance?

This is about the consumer behavior class with Professor Didem Kurt. In my 5 years at NEU, I’ve never found myself in a situation where I needed to ask for this. It looks like I studied the totally wrong stuff. I had a perfect score in the class and then completely flunked the midterm. Like, really, truly flunked it. What should I do next? What has worked for you all?

The best approach to talk to your professor is to be open and polite about your situation. I’ve been in a similar spot before. My professor was understanding and even offered me a makeup quiz. Professors are usually willing to help, especially if you’ve been doing well in class overall.
