UK grading system
Time to move to the UK
Dude I would kill for that grading scale
wait, so what is it in america then?
Anything below that is an F
is that real??
Anything below a 60 is an F… Also, some college course’s I’ve taken a 70% means you completed all that was asked of you, but to get the full 100% you have to go above and beyond the baseline goal of the project. Maybe it’s possible some schools fail you at 65%, but that’s not the ordinary scale. I think a 51% and up should be a pass since that means you know more than you don’t haha.
Here is the wiki for the UK system… I’ll let you explain it to me because it’s blowing my mind!
My picks +/-, and some interesting stats from recent Tourneys.
-8.3 losing score/game in games that I picked incorrectly during the Round of 64.
-8.8 pts/game in games that I picked incorrectly during the Round 32.
-9.75 pts/game in games that I picked incorrectly during the Sweet 16.
+18.3 pts/game in games that I correctly picked during the Round of 64.
+2.9 pts/game in games that I correctly picked during the Round of 32.
+7.0 pts/game in games that I correctly picked during the Sweet 16.
This is based off of my picks, and the outcomes that would have come forward had I swapped losing teams. Like ISU beating ND was factored as a loss, but I also had ND beating Duke. In that round I took ISU losing to Duke as a loss as well in these figures. I have Mich. State beating L-Ville, but now Duke replaces Mich. State in that match up. I get this really makes no sense, but I’m going with the idea that I thought a certain team was strong enough to win and if they lose then the team that beat them would be even stronger.
Of course this goofy way of looking at how right/wrong I was could only come from someone who has ONE Final Four team left. I’m just not good at this outside of the first round haha. This year has been an exciting tourney compared to last years, but nowhere near the 2011’s exciting collection of Elite 8 teams.
Current average seed left is 3.5. 9 seed Wichita State is currently the lowest seeded team in the Elite 8.
2012 Tourney Elite 8 average was 2.6. 4 seed Louisville was the lowest seeded team in the Final Four that year.
2011 Tourney Elite 8 average was 4.5. 8 seed Butler and 11 seed VCU both making it to the Final Four, and no 1 seeds making it the Final Four. The first time that had happend since 2006 when another 11 seed, George Mason, made an appearance in the Final Four by beating 1 seed UConn in the D.C. Regional.
- American media on the India gang rape: Omg those barbarians are out of control! Look at us, we're so ahead of the times!
- American media on the Steubenville rape: Omg look at the lives we're ruining by convicting these 16 year old rapists!
- EDIT This pisses me off: Most news sources(I'm sure there are some fucked up people out there) are not writing columns about how this is ruining the convicted rapists lives. They may be telling you how the drama in the court room is, but it's not that they truly feel sorry for these criminals. I've never seen someone realize their life is over before they even realized it, and breakdown without caring who sees it. But I can say that describing the tumultuous moments when a person realizes that is going to be like any story. A charming beginning, a climax, and the devastating end where justice has prevailed. Most of the people that reblog this actually wish that was the case just so they'll have something to scream about today. Some of you out there really want the world/USA to be full of people clamoring for the freedom of rapists. Fucking dumb. Go ahead and Google search Steubenville Rape, and you'll see they all just mention that they are convicted rapists. One does mention it as the case social media won, but it's in a positive manner. Do some fucking research before you blindly call rape culture in a dumb fucking move to get reblogs. Rapists are a problem that unfortunettly plagues our planet due to a lack of strong mental healthcare procedures. So are people that aren't actually doing anything besides rubbing one out at the thought of being tumblr famous.
- One other note: If you do want to yell and scream over anything you should be pissed that as of right now only two people were charged, and at minimum a combined three years between them. We see children charged with murder all of the time. This boys/young men/men knew what they were doing, and should have been charged like any other rapist. In no way to I feel sorry for them. I just understand the overly dramatic ways the news networks...CNN work. Please, if you are going to reblog something as the talking point you should reblog the messages about how these guys will spend barely any time in juvy when they should be in prison.
