Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F
I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?
You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.
Average American Grading Scale:
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
F- 59 and under
oh wow that is fucked up
why do they skip E in america
There’s an E in other grading scales?
And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
A - 100-93
B - 92-85
C - 84-78
D - 77-70
F - 69 and below
Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier?
No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?
UK Grading Scale
Below 40: F
ARE YOU FUCKING WITH ME?! THATS INSANE!!!!
next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid
i’m gonna remind you
that our “average” is your “A”
I really don’t want to be a dick but aren’t those multiple choice tests quite often?
I’m in law school (yes I know that isn’t high school) and I’m taking German, French and American classes at the same time to get three degrees. In French and German, you won’t get away with writing less than 15 pages whereas in American law, you regularly get a multiple choice test.
Evidently, if you’re taking a multiple choice test instead of an actual exam, it’ll have to be graded more strictly.
As for American written exams, that grading system is in fact complete bullshit, though.
that’s exactly what I thought! and imagine the damage 114,500,000 murdered people must have left in their respective families, not only emotionally but -considering the social situation at the time- also financially and stuff. Another 500,000,000 or more probably lived their lives in complete misery as a result!
woah, I just calculated that in the 20th century, 114,500,000 people died in wars (not including civilian casualties or soldiers who went MIA as well as civilians who starved or died of diseases).
114,500,000 HUMAN BEINGS!
Imagine how wealthy, advanced and happy our society could be if we had just not started all those wars!!!!
