    lol the college he goes to in ROTF is an ivy league school (they mention how his dad paid for him to go to an ivy league school and how he cant find a job in DOTM)

    lmao in the first film, he seems to be a mere average student.

    I guess he just studied a lot, it's very common in real-life.

    Besides, it's entirely possible that THA GOVERNMENT helped him.

    In the novel adaptation of Revenge of the Fallen it explains that when he shoved the Allspark into Megatron's chest the cube transferred it infinite wisdom into Sam that's why he got so smart. When Sam was brought back by the Primes the wisdom went into the matrix. Hope this answers your question.

    Government paid for it. I'm sure that its not hard for them to set him up into a good college. Dude sorta saved the world and all.

    Maybe educational standards are lower in Michael Bay's fictional worlds.

    I don't know if anyone saw my post, but Sam got an "A-" (admittedly after begging for it).

    There are many ways of getting into a Ivy College without the marks.

    In ROTF, when Sam starts college, it's said to be two years after the previous film. If Sam is a freshman in College, then that puts him at junior status in High school, so he still had a chance to raise his grades.

    Plus, even though it was filmed at an ivy league college, it wasn't really established that it was the same college in the movieverse. I mean,this is the same universe where Jetfire can walk out of a Smithsonian air and space museum hangar in D.C. into the Boneyard in Arizona (two locations that are effectively on opposite sides of the U.S.), there is somehow a shoreline on a large water body (not the Nile) in Egypt that is close to the pyramids, and Egypt was actually a fertile countryside at some point in the distant past. All things that can't possibly be true in real life.

    the reason dr. taub gave him a b minus was due to using his project as a way to auction off stuff, aside from that bit he did pretty well

    Strings were pulled. He also had some hard-to-top extracurricular activities and a few amazing letters of reference.

    Egypt and the rest of the middle east actually was very fertile in the distant past IIRC.

    In DOTM, Carly said that the government paid for Sam's college when he was complaining about not getting a job. The government paid for his college just so they could keep him quiet about the Autobots. If you pay attention, right after Bumblebee blows up Sam's house in ROTF, Sam's dad tells his mother that the government will pay for the damages if they keep quiet. So basically, until the middle of ROTF, Sam and his family could bribe the government to get anything they want as long they don't say anything about the Autobots.
