How is she supposed to know who copied who? YDI for letting your friend cheat off you.
Ok, so there are a thousand reasons why you are a moron, besides the fact that you let your "best friend" copy off you. FYI, "best friends" only exist in high school and are usually the worst person you will come in contact with in your life. First of all, "our results for our final grade English paper on which" is shoddy grammar, the first sign that you've made mistakes in life. Then there's the lovely phrase "copy off from". Off from? Where did you learn English? And finally, but not lastly, there's my favorite: you got a E- and your friend got a A-. WTF!? Do you actually talk like this? Say it out loud: a E and a A. Hi, have you been introduced to the word "an", because I think it would be useful here. Damn it. This is why the rest of the world hates the U.S. Learn something.
Hey, atleast it's better than an F right? ha Does suck for you, but YDI for letting your friend copy
I didn't know the grade E- existed. Is that worse or better than an F?
I'm more surprised your friend actually got an "A." perhaps she actually wrote the paper herself after she realized she was copying of a bog-stupid retard?
If the way you wrote this FML is any indication, your grasp of the English language is tenuous at best. I'm sure the paper did not deserve that A- anyway. And YDI in the first place for letting your friend copy and not thinking you'd get caught. From which on which on that which on that... on.
An E- is worse than an F. America is the only country stupid enough to skip the letter E and go straight to F. Normal countries don't do that. And FML, but YDI a little too. At least you learned your lesson (hopefully).
We don't skip. In my public schools, the grading scale (from best to worst) was A, B, C, D, E. There were no pluses or minuses. In college, we have A, B, C, D, F. No Es, but we have pluses and minuses. I've never heard of an E-. Ever. And as already pointed out, the reason for skipping E is that F stands for FAIL.
I think it's because the letter E on a grade stands for "Excused" or something. America isn't stupid for skipping the letter, it would be more stupid to use it for 2 different things. Also, way to insult an entire country of people you've never met based on one thing they do that happens to differ from the way your country does things. =D
Actually, we in America are smart enough to know that 'E' is between 'D' and 'F.' However, there is a certain logic to skipping over 'E' and using 'F' to indicate a failing grade. When you realize you are going to have to tell your parents about this grade, the word that comes to mind doesn't begin with an 'E.' (There are too many letters to skip to get to the other good candidate, 'S'.)
In Ontario we use R, for remedial, instead of F from JK - 6 and then percents afterwards in combination with grade levels. To claim that a country is idiotic for using a different grading system than your own is not only insulting to us, but you just demonstrated how much of an ignorant fool you happen to be. Please, if you are going to argue over something so pointless, read out loud your comment before you post or you just look like a total jackass. As a side note the percents work like this for us: A: 80-100 Level 4: Above government standards B: 70-79 Level 3: At government standards C: 60-69 Level 2: Below but approaching government standards D: 50-59 Level 1: Well below government standards. Anything below 50 and you failed. As a final thought, you people do realize that in most countries, education is under state/province/what ever jurisdiction which includes the grading system they use. That would account why some places you just need a 85 instead of a 95 to be considered doing very well in a course. You all don't learn the same thing at the same time at the same degree of difficulty. And that ends my two cents.
well, you see, as previously stated (about 6 other times) "F" is interchangeable with the world "fail" or "failing". I, personally, have never heard of the word "ealing". So, although we skip a letter in some states, it still has a good reasoning behind it. how's it feel to be schooled by a 9th grader?
At my college, they give us our percentage grade and then we have to figure out our own letter grade. Also, some of the grading scales are different depending on the difficulty of the class. Most are 90-100 is an A, and so on, but for really difficult classes like organic chemistry and such the scale is easier, such as an 83 is still an A. Also, the fact that you seem to think that F comes before E and that someone who let their friend copy an ESSAY forces me to come to the conclusion that you are an idiot.
