I think the real problem is that we keep posting in threads that have already been answered. We are on page three, and the question asked was answered way back...

He is Praying Smiley

Or we better say he is.

I noticed his avatar says IGuitarrist. IG is the grade you get in sweden when you do not pass a subject or test in school (similar to F). It is used to insult people. "IG-barn" someone with a lot of IG's= an idiot who can't do that thing properly.

Tilanus is a IGuitarrist. Get it Devil (= He is horrible at playing the guitar.)

That was really on topic...

Our government has decided what we need to know to aquire a certain grade. It is up to the teacher to figure out if a student reaches tose goals. At the moment we have four grades, three of them makes you pass, ant the fourth means you fail. From best to worst: MVG, VG, G, IG. We are on our way to change system, so there will be seven grades: A, B, C, D, E, F, Fx. But it is clumbsily done, they don't set up new criterias for the additional grades. It is just a political play, the lot of it.

That system is widly used. They want to introduce it so that it will be "easier to compare with other nations", but the grading sustem itself is different, so all of it is quite futile.

yep, in the end will be useless talking, unless you change the whole system, something that will surely not be happening

Oh, our polititians love critisizing each others school policys. We have changes systems OFTEN. I don't think it's healthy. Now they also added grades to make it more of a competition, and we also get grades earlier. That is quite good though, as it is now, we don't et grades until 8th grade. And we graduate the year after. Now we will get it from 6th grade, wich I think is quite "lagom" (intranslatable phrase).
