Even scarier numbers…

November 6, 2009

I thought the graduation percentage stats were bad…but this:

At Berkeley, students sat exams in 12 subjects including science, English, maths, drama, Spanish and business. None of the students achieved an A* the highest possible rating. Six were awarded an A three in drama, one in Spanish and one in business. Two further students received As in Spanish at the GCE level.


Thirty-six of the 86 students who took the English exam passed ten were awarded a B, with the remainder receiving a grade of C.


Sixty-five students sat the maths exam six attained a B grade, 19 achieved a C grade. Nineteen students received a U.

It is very clear from international standards that we are failing in education.  What does 99% graduation rate matter if 19 students at Berkeley got a U in Maths??  How do we expect these students to be able to obtain decent post-graduate education overseas let along jobs in the international business or insurance sector?

  5. I swear, he was sooo happy after that goal. If he could’ve jumped out of his own skin, he would have. It was great to see. This team is only going to get better if/when he officially gets the “C” next season.

  6. Menurut saya, pembuatan animasi jauh lebih menarik dan atraktif menggunakan program flash. Namun dalam proses pembuatannya lebih rumit dan harus teliti. Jika menggunakan Css 3 memang lebih mudah tetapi tampilan animasinya flat dan harus membuat lebih menarik agar tidak membosankan.
