Oh, I'm majorly lazy too, it's just that a new semester has started, and I'm A's and B's right now, instead of A's, B's, and C's.

School sucks, but you might as well try to get good marks.

Bosses like to hire people with good marks cause those people have usually spent their years toiling on stupid projects that have no purpose. That makes them them the perfect candidates!

Of course there's also that other group of people that skip class, learn the curriculum themselves and then ace every single test as it comes up. Laziness ftw!

Oh, and my marks are in the mid to low A range right now, but exams are coming up, so they'll likely go up.

How can't you do Modern Studies? Its basically an A as soon as you start the class?!

Also, why are some people proud of their poor grades?

A = 100 - 90
B = 89 - 80
C = 79 - 70
F = 69 and below.

Basically A is awesome, B is borderline, C is crap, F means you're f*cked.

Interesting, even for the last year? Here you generally need high B's minimum to get into university (which I assume you did since you're a lawyer). I guess it doesn't matter that much about grades in high school.

South Australia:
A = 100 - 85
B = 84 - 70
C = 69 - 55
D = 54 and below which is basically a fail.

I only got A's for subjects I enjoyed such as english studies, philosophy and psychology. I would get B's for subjects I partly enjoyed like legal studies and C's for subjects I disliked such as specialist mathematics. 69 is actually a decent mark here in Australia, but I guess our grading system is completely different to yours.

Wow I feel very priveleged to study in Australia. I understand how much more competitive and difficult it is to be accepted into college in countries like the United States. Here in Australia you can fail most your subjects and still get accepted into university to do a business course or a basic social science. I didnt take education for granted in my last year and I advise you not to either. I'm studying medical science next year but yes, if you do end up screwing your last year: Come study in Australia!

Wow, Australia sucks.

Where I'm from, it works like this:

A = 100 - 94
B = 93 - 86
C = 85 - 78
D = 77 - 70
F = 70 and below

thanks. but isn't that system a bit shiate? it generalizes a lot. there's a huge difference between a 100 and a 90. no?

Hey, it's a system. Nobody said anything about it having to work. I agree though, it's pretty crappy.

Yep, even my senior year. I graduated in the bottom half of my class. The thing is, I did pretty well on the SAT, so my college ended up inventing a scholarship for me. My problem is I'm immensely intelligent but also immensely lazy.

Hopefully all A's and B's, but probably a C will sneak in there...

Dirk, I think a lot of people are immensely intelligent, but supremely lazy. I scored really well on the ACT and PSAT, but my grades often end up in the shitter, because I couldn't be arsed to do the work.

^ It depends on the school. Some places have below 75 as an F, some have below 65 as an F, and apparently your school has below 50.

#35
Below 50 seems like a more sensible failing mark than below 70 to me. Guess Texas is just stupid.

I was a B student back in Secondary School. Nowadays, in college, I'm a C student, just because I don't try and I'm huge procrastinator. I'm working at it, though. I hope to achieve B's.

why's there no E?

i might as well add that i score around 7/8 (1 to 10 system) and that's considered pretty good as we have 3 different levels of secondary education and i'm at the highest AND half my subjects are in english

edit: also heard of an english teacher who's american that you can compare our lowest level to the american level and you pretty much can't fail that unless you don't come to school, purposely give wrong answers and have an IQ of <53

I did pretty well last year,but this year,the teachers suck ass,and for my mid year in algebra,i was supposed to write a 2 paragraph essay,and it came to two sentances,or was it one? dont remember even tho it was an hour ago or so.
My grades suck ass to dont feel bad.
#39
The vast majority Bs, two As and one C. I've gotten very lazy, while I'm happy enough with those marks I know I can do better, and I needed at least four As to get into some higher after school thing, which I only learnt about today. If I ha dknown I might have tried a bit harder in my exams, but oh well. All the more reason to do well in my actual GCSEs.
