LOL.
Adapting the issue to "Yes" and "No.
Yeah. It's like that.
Well... as for me, the grading statistics is there for a reason. Hence, if this shit happens, then the grades will be either based on their own opinion or rather the original.
I.E; Teacher hates you; then it's Fail. If you're doing well in class, then it's Pass. BUT mind you that it'll be hard if the certain Teacher or whatever is an Ass and most likely will fail the whole class in one wrong move. =/

I just want to ask a question so that I can back-up my essay with "statistics" and some quotes from you guys. What if the United States or countries using the letter or number grade report card system change it to only "pass" or "fail". Basically, what you will see in your report card will only be "pass" or "fail".

Is it a good idea? Why or why not?

What do you think the advantages will be? What are the disadvantages?

What do you think of it? Share your "educated" opinions.


Sounds like it might work. but then again, you would have no way of telling how well you did on something, with a letter or number system. you can look at it ald tell, Oh well he did alright at this and needs to do better on this. With pass or fail, It would work but not as efficently.

i don't like the pass or fail system. i prefer number grades since they encourage you to try harder to raise that grade from say an 85 to something like a 90 or above. with the pass or fail system you wouldn't know if you had a 70 in the class or a 100. that would piss me off.

i've always had a few questions about the pass or fail system though.

how would the pass or fail system go into calculating GPA and class rank? how is it supposed to work for college applications? i'm sure if we had a pass or fail system then pretty much everyone applying would be all PASSes.

I think there should be numbers because if you do fail, you'll know how bad you did in that class.
And wouldn't you like to know if you were making an A? Your buddy next to you could have a "pass" too, but in reality he's making a D!
And the real major deal for me is this: what if you currently have a "pass", and decide to let an assignment slide and then later you find out your failing?
It's like my graduation exams I hade to take. They give you no indication on how well you did on it. They give you a pass or fail. Which sucks, because I swore I was gonna fail my math portion but I didn't I got a "pass". I wanted a real score, to see how bad I did on it. >.>
