Grade Rules for Success Guide
Do you want a guide on how to succeed at university? Well, here's how you do it.
For most people, uni is about 3 things (not necessarily in this order): fun and adventure, meeting people and making friends, and learning and graduating. With these goals in mind, the path to success is in your subject marks / grades.
High Distinction (85-100%). Congratulations. You aced it. But are you studying too hard or just super-intelligent?
Distinction (75-84%). Doing great. Right in the sweet spot. High marks but you can't be accused of being a swat.
Credit (65-74%). Not cool. You passed easily enough but you can't do honours with a credit average. Try a bit harder.
Pass (50-64%). Lucky. Almost failed. No more gaming, long social media sessions, or other time-wasting for you. Let's get serious.
Fail (<50%). You just blew your tuition fees for nothing. Waste of time and money. Why did you bother? Take a vow to spend every day in the library. You need to study much harder. What will you tell your family? Maybe you could blame the lecturer. He/she didn't stop nearly everyone else passing though. Weak excuse. Note to self: come up with a more convincing explanation.
