High School Scores

Hey everyone, I just wanted to know what your High School scores were, what I mean is wherever you live, there should be a ranking system that determines what courses you can take in University or what not. (for example, ATAR, GPA, etc.) You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to, I know a lot of people keep it secret. :)

Also, today I over heard someone saying that they got 97.5! for their ATAR, which is almost the highest possible mark!

I’ll say 100, but I’ve never taken the test. That means I can pick any score I want, right?

What is the ATAR test?

Hahaha nice, right, I should have thought about it a bit more before I posted it. ATAR is the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank. The highest possible mark is 99.85. I think it’s like the GPA in America. (Sort of)

Hmmm…. In highschool, I made it on the honour roll, which means I had at least a 70% average in all my classes.

I always got 100% in metal shop, usually got ~60% in French and Social Studies (I’m sure I could have done better in socials if it wasn’t in french!), and in math and science I got ~80%. English I usually got ~80% as well.

Not going to lie though, I half assed through almost all my courses. Physics 12 was the one course that I actually took time at home to study and do homework for.

Funny how I don’t remember my SAT scores and can hardly remember how I did in high school. Those things were once sooooo important in my life and now that I’m done with school, grades don’t matter one bit.
