If that’s true then that’s pretty ridiculous.

According to Wiki, 50% is passing.

It depends on the province I believe.

And even if a 51% gets you a passing grade...you can’t do anything with that other then get your high school diploma. Any post education requires much higher marks.

That’s crazy though, if you had gotten a 50% in my school that means you’re close to retarded, or Canadian I guess.

Yes that’s true, but our grading works the same way yours does.

And point of interest...I was at a graduate conference a few years ago where American professors were complaining about the low educational standards in the U.S. as compared to Canada. Just some food for thought if you’re going to start saying our standards are “ridiculous” wink.

Same with 70% in the USA it’ll get you a high school degree but can’t do much else with it besides community college or a trade school.

It’s all about standards though.
The testing and grading will be different.

A percent doesn’t mean anything...it’s all about how much you’ve learned.

How is 50% passing not ridiculous though? Fuck I could guess better than 50% on test and assignments.

Tell that to the Colleges you’re applying to...

“Well it says here you have a 55% average..."

Only a Canadian would be dumb enough to brag about their ability to destroy their body at a younger age, that’s probably why you could make your way through high school with an F- grade average.
