I've always wondered, if your grade is on a cusp, how does that work? For instance say your grade is a 85.9, does it stay as 85 or convert to an 86? Also, how do bell curves work?

From what I understand, there is no rounding up. You would have to talk with your professor, explain the situation, and ask them to help you by increasing a mark to get you over that hump. They are not required to do so, it would be up to the discretion of the professor.
