In comparison to what?
A scoring system from 0-20 in which 20 is best and everything under 10 is very very bad.

Edit, bloody ninja's
Under the hood its the same mostly, less than 50% is a 5, and everything else is linear interpolated

Thats done on a per-teacher base

"9 is good enough, i'll let you pass"

Or as my analysis teacher," +-2 points are statistical variation"

90% - A*
80% - A
70% - B
60% - C
50% - D
40% - E

I completed the full set in my GCSEs. Double Award Science - A*A*, Maths - A*, Music - A, ICT - B, English - C, Geography - D, RE - E, Business Studies - U

On the other hand, Uni was percentage based.

Overall grade for each course is determined by the weighted mean of all assignments in that course (some assignments are worth more than others). A course is only passed if all assignments are >=30%, and the average is >=40%.

Overall grade for the year is determined by the weighted mean of all courses in that year (some courses are worth more than others). The year is only passed if all courses are >=30%, and the average is >=40%.

In order to progress to the next year, the previous year must be passed. Sometimes they will allow a discretionary pass if only one course is failed and is retaken on top of all next-year courses as well.

Once all years have been passed, the final grade for the (three-year) degree subject is determined by either:

- the overall grade for the third year,
- the median grade of all third year assignments, or
- the weighted mean of all second and third year assignments,

70% - First Class Honours
60% - Upper Second Class Honours
50% - Lower Second Class Honours
40% - Pass (no honours)
lower - no award

I find it interesting that you can pass each year by marginally failing three courses and passing one (years are typically four equal courses), although you can't get an honorary degree in doing so.
Games I like, in order of how much I like them. (Now permanent and updated regularly!)

I actually got a lot done today, apart from screwing a lot of things up. A whole lot done.

Also, my girlfriend.

Six hours of uninterrupted sleep to be followed by a nice hot cup of tea and Marmite on toast. It doesn't get much better than that.

Maybe this is the day Josh Parnell decides to get in touch with us.

I'm not holding my breath.

I'm out of Marmite, which is somewhat disappointing.

I don't know where to put this "announcement" but as it makes me happy and probably many in the Community who are sick of my nostalgic ramblings I thought this was the ideal place.

I will be silent here for at least ten days from this coming Monday as I am once again joining a group of kindred spirits on Retreat.

I'm informing the Community because it seems like the polite and decent thing to do. I'm looking at you Josh Parnell.

Try not to wreck the place ladies and gentlemen. Hopefully, your good selves will still be here when I return.

Thanks gentlemen

I don't leave until very early Monday morning but the group once again insist that no means of contacting the rest of the world are allowed and any tech will be confiscated. I don't own a mobile phone of any description but it does take me a few days to mentally let go of my PC and the interwebs.
