If you do poorly on a placement exam, you may get placed into remedial classes (also called developmental or basic education). These classes usually cost as much as regular college courses, and take up lots of time, yet do not usually confer any college credit. The situation varies from state to state and from school to school, but as a rule, it is better to avoid remedial classes if at all possible.
