Its not impossible to get a 100 in many of the courses, especially the quantiative ones. But at least in my school you would have to be ridiculously brilliant to get close to a 100. (or maybe you had to repeat the year)

Yeah, I'm 21 and am in college. I was saying on the last page that a 95 isn't uncommon at all here as long as you aren't an idiot. Only problem with papers is they are largely subjective and if you have one of those really opinionated and narrow-minded teachers that thinks one particular way on a subject and you write it another, your grade could be damaged because of their bias. Luckily, I am an Engineering major, sooooooo, no bullshitting math.

raj...you need to start getting your stuff published.

I can't really tell if you're trying to be a dick to him or not, lol. I know you've ripped on him before in this thread. It's not that 95% is common, but it's not like OMFG, I can't believe you got teh 95s. There are plenty of idiots who get in the 70s and below. But to answer your question, no, 70% is not even passing (at the college level) for credit. You didn't "fail" as in get the lowest letter grade you can, but you didn't get the grade you need to in order to get credit for the class, so in a sense, you failed.

It's like Juges said, a lot of grading is subjective so if you agree or pander to your teachers tastes you can get good grades.

A 95% generally means you had a good to great paper where you explained your points almost perfectly and had little to no grammatical errors.

Yea UK the grading system is very different here. Its like very easy here. School wise. Like in HS in most classes if u do the work and everything you're gonna pass the class guaranteed. Maybe even with a B or A depending on your teacher. In college, it depends on your professor, and what college u attend. Like at a real university its very hard, like at UH or UT, ,etc...but I go to a community college and its very easy at this community college.

wait wait wait hold up. not here bro...here in the community college I go to. A 70 is a C and u need a C to transfer the credit. So if u get a 69 thats a D, and so for the community college u would pass with a 69 but if you're transferring to a 4 year college like me, then you failed cuz it wouldn't transfer.

Well, my school gives minuses and just recently started giving pluses, BUT it is up to the teacher whether or not to actually use +/- as a lot choose to just got with Straight A-F. So it depends, but the majority of my teachers use +/-, so you need at least a 74 (C) to get credit for it towards your major. Anything <74 you don't get credit. And in some of my upper-level engineering classes, I need a B or B+ to get credit for it towards my major. Not that I strive for Cs anyways lol.
