yeah i am definitely glad i didnt do high school in the us alsO gpa freaks me out a bit like i think it means you have to do well all year????? (i’m guessing us systems confuse me) and i would cry i didn’t understand almost any chemistry through basically my whole last year and then ended up getting my highest mark in it at the end

"no no i get what you mean! but in america, the grading scale is this: 100-90 = A; 89-80 = B; 79-70 = C; 69-60 = D; 60 below is an F. Ds and Fs aren't really considered passing, but you can graduate with Ds on your report card. a 72% is actually a really low C, just passing, so if you're looking at it in terms of american grading system it makes sense :) i hope /i'm/ making sense"

ah yeah you make sense in the uk it’s like exactly the same but 10% lower? like 100-90 is a*, 89-80 is a etc. so 72 is a low b in the uk (except not always bc here we also have this thing called ums aka uniform mark scale where grades get changed depending on how well everyone did so if everyone did well on a paper and you did ok you could go down a bit if that makes sense)

oh on the paper where it said 72 i just meant i guessed they meant 72% (i might be wrong) and that seemed like a high amount for a c- (i mean in the uk we don’t have + or - grades but still) i hope that made sense?

n a r n i a? what’s that?

                    oh, my dear girl, y o u ’ r e   i n   i t .

Like most british actors, I’d love to be in a Bond film, but I want to be the one who finally kills Bond and doesn’t sleep with him.
