OVERHEARD:
girl to her friend: I don't think it's fair that Waterloo requires minimum averages like 60 or 70 to graduate. 70 isn't even a low mark. I mean, a 75 is like an A in England.

  1. How else would we keep our reputation of being one of the best schools in the country? We can't let lazy people come and pay for a degree that is worth the same as someone who worked hard.

    1. I don't think the problem is with laziness, it's just too much of a specific evaluation system. It's easier for them but you only get one type of people to stand out. I think students should be evaluated in 3-5 different approaches including plain ol' boring exams (I do OK on those, mostly) and people who stand out are the ones with the best skills and understanding
