An A's an A

  • First Day Back at School
  • Friend: Heeeey, how were your results? :)
  • Me: Pretty good, other than that U in French which is totally the exam board's mistake, the whole departments being sent off for remarks.
  • Friend: *hisses in sympathy* You must have been so annoyed! What grade did you get in Music?
  • Me: A, and it was 90%! I'm really happy!!
  • Friend: Not bad, not bad! What did you get for English Literature?
  • Me: A :)
  • Friend: What percentage was it?
  • Me: Not sure, but I got 169 out of 200
  • Friend: Oh... *calculates* That's about 85%. Well, an A's an A, so it's not that bad. Well done! What about Maths?
  • Me: Oh yeah, I got a B. I know, I know, it's pretty disappointing. But I'm dropping it and it's the least important AS, so it's alright!
  • Friend: Wow, really?! I averaged 97%!
  • Friend 2: Pfft, I averaged 98%.
  • Me: ...yeah, well... Maths has always been my weakest subject next to Science, I'm not surprised with my grade.

  • This conversation is the epitome of my school's attitude towards results. LOL.
