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
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
next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid
i’m gonna remind you
that our “average” is your “A”
#is that true?
Yep I was shocked when I heard this in a different post but a Google search pulls up a ton of sites backing this up.
Shit son I woulda passed College Algebra with an A in the UK. And I spent the end of the semester in perpetual fear that I would fail and have to retake the class.
And basically as an American you’re expected to get 80 or higher. Technically 70s are considered ‘average’ but there is such a level of pressure to get a B or higher, that Cs have become equal to Ds. Basically anything under 60 you might as well gotten a 0, and anything between 60-80 is considered practically failing. So basically schools have to be designed to make sure majority of students are getting 80s or higher on specific topics, which means you’re spending all your time going over a few choice facts a billion times and there is very little room to teach anything else. Which explains why American schools are of such low quality. The insane demand on the students ends up wrecking their education. Not only do you not have time to teach them anything, but they end up hating learning. Even outside of school your life is dedicated to memorizing these few dumb facts because your homework ends up taking hours of your time. A teacher from one subject says they expect you to spend 2 hours every night on their homework. And if you’re studying 5 subjects and they all demand that 2 hours? Good fucking luck, because if you don’t have straight all 80s or higher you’re not getting into a good college and college degrees have somehow become the minimum requirement for getting jobs.
I spent most of my junior year of high school in a state of constant panic that I was going to get a C in Honors Physics much less fail the class. If I got a C on my report card, I was grounded until the next one. I lost count of the times I’d wake up at five in the morning to take the early bus to go in for zero hour before school actually started for the day
File this under the exact reason so many Americans detest going to school.
And another reason it’s horrible is because the grading system depends on which state you live in. Some go by 7, some go by 10. So imagine two students, Student A lives in a state where they do the 10 grading scale, and Student B lives where they do the 7 point grading scale.
Each do the exact same classes, get the exact same grades on their tests and quizzes. They give the exact same effort for their classes..
Lets say there is 5 tests in for the class.
90%, 92%, 100%, 90%, 90%
Averaged up this is a 92.4% on their report card.
Student A gets an A- while Student B get’s a B.
Student A goes home and shows their parents the A on their report card, and the student who goes home with the B can either be praised by their parents for doing a good job and just work on getting an A, or be scolded saying they should have tried harder when all they did what. It honestly depends on the parents of the student.
Even though its only a slight difference in the grade it’s still not fair, and to be quite honest Colleges don’t pay attention to the possible differences in the numbers of grades. They look at the letters and see who did better in the classes.
American school systems need to be fucking fixed since apparently work and grades are more important than the student’s well being or just the student in general. We’re suppose to just sit and do our best with our school work even if it’s over working.
Some teachers will give you hours of homework and added on to the other classes you take, and if you take an AP class or two good fucking luck trying to get a good amount of sleep for school. If the American government wants to fix things, they should probably stop and actually take a look at other countries school systems and actually fix things the way should be fixed instead of trying to hold a gun to student’s heads and tell them to work.
Even if a student does their best and is at the top of their class, the next thing you have to go and worry about is fucking colleges taking several thousand dollars from you and pushing you off a cliff into debt. And a college degree is something you NEED these days in this country to even get a good paying job that can actually support yourself.
The government should notice something is wrong if students in their freshman year in high school already know something is wrong. 14 year old students can see the system is corrupt. And the American government does absolutely nothing.
