An 82 in Canada would be considered an A.

Actually I think an 83-100 is an A,but here they don't really say A, B, C, etc.. just the average.

What's cool about the ACT grading system is that we're scaled with every student in the state.
The average score for a physics test was 18% and i got a 30%.
B+

Just to warn anyone in high school. Don't sweat it. You should still try and get good grades and what not, but don't stress yourself about highschool whatsoever, and don't overachieve too much.
I can promise you when you hit college, your high school achievements will (mostly) mean jack ****.
Oh, and all the stuff you're learning is pretty much useless.
Pick an area of study NOW - I know it seems like a big choice to make, but you'll be happier in the long run. Don't just go for gen eds in college. Believe me, when your in college taking psychology, history, and other useless classes (unless that's truly where your interests and plans lie) your gonna be thinking, "why the **** am I paying to learn this?"
Best advice I can give is to figure out what you like doing, and go to school for it. If you change your mind, switch, but don't go in with no plan.

tldr - if you're in highschool, don't wory too much about stuff, but have a plan before you hit college.

Also, your college doesn't really matter, as long as it's not some liberal arts faggot school.

it's about field experience, not education

If I get a certain mark this year I get a $5000 scholarship. When I think about it, it's going to cost me a year's worth of slacking off, so it doesn't really feel worth it.
But if I don't get it I'll feel like I lost $5000, which I did in a way.

Also, don't **** up your Freshman year. Just don't. I did. Got a 1.2 or 1.5 GPA. Now I get a 3.4 but my Freshman year is killing my total and looks bad for college.

Junior year, and your ACT/SAT are the only things that matter to colleges

They won't look at your freshman year

They won't look at the freshman year, but they will take a look at your cumulative GPA as of your Junior year.

>Tfw my school wouldn't let me excel in math and forced me to take something other than programming, so when I got to college I was inexperienced and had to teach myself 3 languages within 2 months, and teach myself advanced java

My point is that for subjects like science, you pretty much HAVE to be in 60 percent of the lessons and concentrating to pass. True people are naturally smart, but that doesn't mean they're born with the necessary knowledge to pass a test.

Here in NZ, I'm in NCEA level two, which is the last compulsory year of high school (we call it college). I've never done any significant amount of homework, and I barely study for any exams, and often sleep in class. Nevertheless I got a merit endorsement last year, which is the second top highest mark, and was decently close to an excellence, which is the top.
I suppose I'm lucky, but it also means I have a god awful work ethic and will probably go downhill come uni.

Combination of things really, for starters most of the specific **** you learn you forget because you stop using that knowledge, for example at one point in time I used to know what mathematical forumlas I would use to see how much the percent chance of drawing any given card in a 52 card deck was after any given number of draws in any order as well as any combination of cards, since I had spent four weeks straight studying to know this information it was so slammed into my head I could do most of the calculation without a calculator, a year later if someone asked me the percent chance of drawing a king of hearts within eleven draws I would shrug and say I dunno. It's not exactly like riding a bicycle specific information like calculus doesn't stick with you unless you keep using it, same for my Japanese and my science classes.
English sorta sticks with you but after 9th grade it's the same thing every single year just more of it, pretty much write 2 of every kind of essay and a couple book reviews and some review on shakespear, always ******* shakespear, five schools across two countries can't get away from the guy.
Most electives are a little better because they are usually skill orientated and teach you skills you can go home and expand on however, those are kinda ****** over to because the teachers have to make em easy enough for people who just want an easy A to join em to so that they get enough funding. In this way they can't make a strict advanced elective class in a public highschool so they only teach you the basics of a subject and what you can figure out on your own.

And that's how I learned absolutely nothing from highschool while still recieving straight A's and B's and a advanced physics once because I missed a month.
I think it's worth noting that I went to five different public highschools throughout my four years and every single one held true to this and they were all considered best in their regions for test scores.

The fact that they force you to take a language in high school is litterely the most ******** thing I've ever ******* heard of. I learned more spanish in a month of working at a restaurant then all 4 years spanish 3-AP. ******* ********.

Plus, the spanish they teach you in schools, isn't the spanish the mexicans use in america. The mexicans use a slang type of spanish
