Marking Acceptance Standards

My academic environment since elementary school has shaped a mind set for assignment marks acceptance:

  • 90-100: Great! You deserve that score after those sleepless hours!
  • 80-90: Good! You can do a bit better next time!
  • 70-80: It’s okay, Cahya! Promise me you’ll prepare more for next assignments!
  • 60-70: Not good. You might have just realised that this module isn’t for you. You better watch out.
  • <60: What do you think you’re doing?????? Ditch those Running Man episodes. Stop watching FOX and NatGeo. Stop buying DVDs. Use StayFocusd and block Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, Kshownow. *cries under the shower*

Pretty much so. Having a different scale here in the UK, I have to adapt this mind set. I learned that:

  • <45: You’ve come a long way to be in this state, Cahya. Are you seriously going to throw this golden opportunity just like this? Come on, cheer up! Let’s go to the library.
  • 45-55: It’s okay, you can do much better later on. Promise me to at least achieve 60 next time.
  • 56-72: Not bad! Just a little more effort, you’re almost there!
  • 72-80: Good job! See, through all those insecurity and sleepless nights, you can nail this assignment!
  • 81-90: OMG Cahya I’m so proud of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • >90: IS THIS APRIL FOOL’S DAY OR SOMETHING? IS THIS A HIDDEN CAMERA? IS THIS A PRANK? OMG let’s party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
