So I got my GCSE results today, and I think I did rather well considering how freaked out I've been about what grades I was going to get. I mean, not so much with the Art Grade, I'm a little disappointed with that, but still, not bad.

For those of us who are unfamiliar with the grading scale in your neck of the woods, what does it mean when you get an "E" in a subject? Over here, that means you failed! (And I know you didn't fail art!!)

@Wade - Well, it's just a low grade. Over here, for GCSEs, and I think A Levels, but I'd have to double check, the grades go:
A*, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, U.
All you need to get a G is one mark and depending on the exam, 10-30 marks for an F. A "U" is a flat-out fail. But I think anything above F is a pass.
Our system doesn't seem to make sense, but I think that's because we tried to avoid "+" or "-" grades that you get over in America.

@Waziki - Hooray! :D
