95

Anything below 95 and I start freaking out. Maintaining my 4.0 gpa is an absolute priority

85+ decent

What are these numbers? Like percentages?

For me a 'b'. I've never achieved anything lower.

I'm from the train of thought that C is an average grade. For some reason that has been forgotten and now a days a C is treated like an F. I usually got B's and C's 100% cause I suck at tests.

I feel that the grade is negligible so as long I've learned something but when I do learn something the end result is usually at least a B+~A-.

It depends. I was removed from several advanced classes for making grades like 93, because if someone else makes a higher grade they get your spot. So, I don't know if there's a grade that's strictly decent besides the maximum possible score.

40% is decent, I have low expectations for myself.

96% is decent for me.

And that's why I'm a decent person.

it really depends on the class' difficulty, but i always aim for an A. if it's a really tough class and i know i grew, i'm willing to accept a B+

An 80 is good enough for me. I remember telling this student I did a research paper the day before it was due and it was suppose to be 10 pages long. Well, I got a B on it which I felt very proud of considering I waited last second.. but that student was unimpressed only to find out they were a straight A student XD

I was raised to believe you should achieve at least a C so that's really what I went for. That was without revising too so I could probably have received higher in most of my subjects if I put in effort revision-wise but you get what you put in, I suppose. I got a pass in all the stuff I wanted to pass so I'm content. Things went more to shit in the Sixth Form grade-wise but even if I'd passed I doubt I'd have done much with said grades, and even then the grades don't always matter. I'm quite surprised reading through these comments though, where I was taught in my high school the 'gold standard' was an A*-C in 5 subjects. I guess it depends on what you want to do with your life but I'd say calling anything less than near perfect a complete fail is a bit over-dramatic.

For me, a 90 was the bare minimum. Anything less was unsatisfactory.


Same, except during college, I was more lenient about the intermediate grades like homework and projects. If I somehow did less well than expected, I was less hard on myself about it as long as I made up for it in the next project or exam so that the resulting grade was an A. Even when I did get a B, it was enough for me because I knew I tried the best I could. I couldn't stand getting B's in high school though.
