We have something close to that JP. We have semester exams and final exams. Now, I'm in school for 9 months out of the year. semester exams for me are in January, so that's 4 months of learning you have to memorize into these exams.
 
Each exam period is 2 and a half hours long.
 
So we do have some hard tests here too.  
 
That said, I do feel bad for my Singaporean friends here!  Shocked

I think some people here are putting too much importance on numerical grades. Its more important what you learn and not the number you get. I test very well and thus get good grades in exam courses. A friend of mine does not test well, but knows so much, she just freezes at exams so she only has 70s but is brilliant.
 
i think comparing grades is difficult because each place has their own marking system. I mean in Ontario you have standardized grading, which is completly different than the grading in Alberta, it doesnt mean in Ontario students are smarter or the work is easier, its just the way the grading works.

Unfortunately, the numerical grades are what they look at when you apply for scholarships, etc.

I am not trying to cause arguments but in Canada applications for university vary depending on province and country/state.
 
Example for my undergrad, the minimum requirements were:
Quebec: 80% average in CEGEP
Ontario 85% in Top 6 OAC credits
Nova Scotia 80%
BC 85%
NB 85%
PEI 90%
....
 
United States:
90-95%
 
UK
70-75%
 
France
70-75%
 
etc.
 
A 90 in the US does not mean the same thing as a 90 in Singapore
 
Honestly, like Julia grades don't mean anything and everything. I have a professor that has said you will not get higher than an 85 in this course; whereas in a language course I took I got 100 because of the way it is structured...
 
It's really hard to compare grades unless it is the same course, same school, same teacher, etc. I can say that I had a 99 average when I graduated high school, but does that mean that I would necessary get a 99 in the UK, probably not becuase of the way grading works...

I didn't have the intention of comparing grades. I just wanted to post them to look smart for a change. :laff:  
 
Amber, why did your instructor say you can't get higher then an 85?

Some instructors/professors are sadists and mean. But you probably know all that. LOL
 
Luckily I never had the opportunity to be in a class with a professor like that. My friend had this professor who said that half of her class don't pass her course. And it seemed like she did all she can to actually make it happen. Roll Eyes
 
Some teachers don't give out 100 as the perfect score.

I have a lecturer like that this semester. She finds fault with every sentence we write. LOL. I'm managing a B+ average in her class so far, thank God. She won't even give you the 0.01 point you may need to round up your grade to the next level. For example, 80% is an A, and if you have 79.99%, you will have to be content with an A- coz she won't round it up. Roll Eyes

I have had teachers like that before, they say it's because "if you didn't turn in one assignment, that assignment could have bumped your grade up to that one point you needed." so if you have a 59.9% instead of a 60%, you would fail the class.

We need to get at least 60% to get the passing mark, which is 2.50
 
Some teachers are really strict about it and use 60.00
 
Some use 59.50
 
Some use 59.45 (for Mathematical reasonsHuh... 59.45 round off to 59.5 round off to 60... HAHAHA)
 
And our English teacher uses 59.01! So it's such a waste if you get 59.00 XDDD

Got my Algebra Quiz back. 49/50. Sad
 
Call me strange, but I was sorta pissed. lol  
 
Oh well, my overall grade is still a 96% in the class.
 
We also took a quiz in spanish. I'm pretty confident that I got an A+ but who knows, and my overall grade in that is a 95%.  
 
I was stupid and forgot to turn in my English homework so my 97% may fall (but not too much, it should go up because of the extra credit I turned in).
 
......and I hope my essay in business was good enough to raise my B+ up to an A-. Wink

Got my Business test back. I was the only person to get a 100/100, but then he changed it because of some kind of error in the scantron machine and there were a couple more 100s, but now my A- should be like an A. CheesyCheesyCheesy
 
I've never had a report card with A, A, A, A, A! CheesyCheesy
 
The best I've ever had was A, A, B-, B, (my 5th class was a study hall so there was no grade).
