    Okay? It's a top 5 university in the world and one of the hardest degrees to take. The results aren't terrible, chill.

    I don't understand what your problem is?

    Wow, why did you even go? What's wrong with Canada? £14k is worth more than @skrinkle's house.

    Did you at least get a government grant?

    I did not. It is a good school and it actually would end up being cheaper than a Canadian school based on living costs and all. I actually did get $500 grant for doing reasonably well in high school and I somehow never applied for it during my undergrad. Lol

    Is it still the best if no one can actually do well in it? I guess it's just for the name.

    I can assure you there are people who can pull it off, that's why it keeps the prestige

    It's just a completely different system than what everyone is used to in the US. Not one university student in England will get 85% or higher for the year, it's impossible. It's not just my uni.

    40-49% is below average work. 50-59% is satisfactory work. It's "okay" work that's expected for a student, my results were in the higher range of this. There's nothing wrong with getting in this range, it's a good satisfactory level. 60-69% is exceeding the expectations of the tutors and is a highly respected grade to get and what I'm aiming for. 70%+ is showing a professional, high quality level of work and the student would be on track to making some serious advances in their career. It's difficult to get this result.

    A 50% grade in England is equivalent to a 70%/80% grade in America. We just have different ways of marking.

    Also, hell yeah I took the course just for the name. Do you think I really give a shit about Law? It's all about impressing future employers at the end of the day. I'd prefer a 60% at my uni, than an 80% in a uni ranked 20th.

    Yeah, in my experience tests are really easy to get in Canada, they only test you on stuff that they teach you. You are not expected to go too far beyond the material. If you don't get an A-A+ you shouldn't be in university (in Canada).

    It's probably the same difficulty as the UK, just marked differently. Idk @SAKARINBO can you confirm?

    My masters course in uk was easier than my bachelors in Canada, so I disagree. Different programs may vary.

    Glasgow is a good uni. What did you do in your exams? Is it drawing/painting/sculpting something and then writing an essay on it?
