remember that stupid environmental sciences exam
? and how well it went, what with my answers
making lots and lots of sense... well, it seems most of the others failed it miserably. can't see how they can have, looking at the bs i got given points for! i was desperately hoping for at least one 3* if not two. but ths is great! i got a 4 and a 5!!! incredible!!! so now i need one 2.25 and the other can be a 1 as far as passing the course goes :-)
thing is, i don't need to actually pass this course, i have to pass a block of two courses on average. since i've got a 4.25 in the other one i only need a 3.75 in this one. i get 4 grades in this course of which the worst is thrown out :-) so i'm not
going to fail MTU after all! hurray!!!
* swiss german grade scale:1
you probably didn't even turn up for the exam, or you were caught cheating (no, i've never had a 1! had a 1.7 in a biology exam once though)2
you're really really useless, don't know much more than your name (have had quite a few of those, none so far at uni though)3
you're crap, but it could be worse (tend to get these in the subjects i've studied hardest for :-S )4
pass!!! you're still not very good though5
good work! but it could be better6
the meaning of this grade varies. it can mean 'perfect, full points'. however it can also mean 'the others were so utterly crap that even though usually you'd just scrape a four i'm going to have to give you a six or half the class'll get negative grades'...
