Characters are always getting scores like this in anime, that would be considered failing if this were an American high school.

Is this 50/100? That can't possibly be passing in Japan, is it? He's going to be held back if this keeps up.

I'm fairly sure Japanese tests are far more difficult than American tests, so a 50, while bad, isn't "absolutely disgusting" tier stuff.
>>

Isnt a 30% a pass in Japan or something
>>
40/100 is a pass here in Ireland and I heard American tests are easy because of some sort of no child left behind idea.

>check means wrong
>circle means right
Fucking Japan

It ends up about the same.

Easier tests but higher grades to pass.

I dont see the problem

Depends on where you live. Some public schools are far better than others. "No Child Left Behind" doesn't really have much to do with shitty standards though. They were on the decline before that law passed.
>>
>>100741093

It used to be 60-65 is pass, but because of federal funding guidelines and state benchmarks public school teachers are pushed to pass students who are otherwise stupid.
>>
I'm pretty sure japan uses an averaged out grading scale rather than a blank percentage. The C range would be where majority of the people fall where the people higher would be graded accordingly and the people who scored lower would also be graded accordingly.

American tests are easy, but you're missing the bigger picture.

Get 40 or 30 on a test out of 100 means that you only learned 40% or 30% of the material. That's abysmal. There is no college in the world that will let you skate on by only learning 40% of the material. There is no job you can do where you only have to know 40% of what you're suppose to.

That standard isn't preparing you for life.
>>
They can usually retake tests, or maybe they just don't need that high of a score overall.

I know I've had semesters where I could make a few 40s and come out with an A for the class in the end.
>>
>>100741252
Basically grading on a curb? They use that in college over here, but not usually in high school.
>>
Let's be honest for a second, 50 is acceptable in any way if you had the life of those MCs
>>
>>100740949
Harder questions + lower passing score
or
Easier questions + higher passing score

In theory it all balances out.

The point of education isn't really to make you remember how to do stuff and what stuff is. It's to teach you how to figure out how to do stuff.

>>100741093
Yeah now they're easy but they used to be very hard. I had to get 80 or higher when I was in school just to pass.

This was before the whole catering to the retarded subhumans though. School now is probably a cake walk in America.

Higher eduction is obviously tough everywhere.
>>
>>100741413
Yeah no, it's actually about both
>>
>>100741415
>Higher eduction is obviously tough everywhere.
That entirely depends on the major.
>>
>>100741401
>in theory

Yeah but in reality counting potatoes in a picture for a hundred questions is still just counting potatoes. It's not really an achievement no matter how many times you do it.
>>
>>100741481
I guess so but anything that will land you a real job and career is going to take some work.
>>
>>100741401
But you want A's
>>
>>100741401
No, it doesn't. You're thinking of something like unloading bundles of grain off a truck. If the bundles are heavier, it's acceptable to carry less. If the bundles are lighter, you have to carry more.

But this is education. If you miss so much of it, whether the questions are hard or not, you're just not learning the material. I can't take Calculus and just not learn Riemann Sums. That will haunt me when I take the next higher math class.

Education builds on itself. If you take a math class for instance and didn't pick up the material from the previous semester, you going to be screwed.

damn that teacher likes rubbing it in

Man, wait till you spent a few years working in a few companies. Maybe you're lucky, but chances are you gonna be surprised how many idiots are getting by, either constantly fucking up or dodging some work and instead sucking it up to the higher ranks.

Are there any shows that take place in cram schools?
>>
>>100740949

In Japanese schools, all homework and test are practice except for the year end final.
>>
>>100741480
Watch the video.
>>
>>100742317
Do you think that's a good idea? I'm a teacher and I've been considering it, but I'm worried about students just not doing anything if nothing until the final is graded.
