UK Grading Scale is #strange

#UK grading is so WEIRD. 🙄

So in US,
60 – pass🙁
75 – average😓
80 – Good🙂
90 – Excellent😁

In UK (as the #university explains it):
50 – #Pass🙁
60 – #Merit🙂
70 – #Distinction (really good)😁

Apparently, above 70 is like an A in US (I think🤔). It’s so confusing😳! And scary for American & Chinese #studyabroad kids.😱

It’s not even like – Oh, you got 75/80. No, your grade says 75/100 (just like in the US). But now, 75 is really good. 🤔

First time I got a 78, I was SO worried – couldn’t figure out what I did wrong. 😂 The Professor was all ‘Dudes, calm down. That’s a good grade.’

Me and a Chinese girl both were all ‘No, this sucks. This grading system makes NO SENSE!’ 😨😛#givemeaheartattackwhydontcha
