My parents are a bit more liberal... they basically expect me to fix whatever crap grades I get. Kinda makes me feel like I'm responsible and all that what not.

Hell yes.
It used to be you have to get above 90% otherwise it'd be like you were exiled <_<

now they don't care as much, since i've been getting not soooo good marks mostly

My parents are strict. But i don't see why there should be a difference between Asian parents and non-Asian ones.

Based on what I've read in this thread, there is a world of difference.

no my parents aren't strict when it comes to these things but they do care its just they expect me to take full responsibility of my own learning even if i do fail, which suits me just fine.

i get a 77% average, a B, and my parents dont complain. my parents grading system:
A (80-100) = good
B (70-79) = satisfactory
C (60-69) = no computer for the whole year, even one C is enough to not get on comp.
D (50-59) = dead
R (49-0) = lol

its even worse in my school grading system in philipines
97 = perfect, you cannot get higher than this
77 = failing

and its so easy to get a 77 its not even funny.
my parents are strict, but not as strict as other parents. they expect my brother and my little brother to go to university. so far my sister only has gone to u of t.
if i get any lower im dead
