Grading System

I’ve lived in Denmark for quiet some time now, and I think I am doing alright. Especially drawing cartoons has been a big part of my life, I truly enjoy interacting with my Danish or None-Danish audience ( thanks for comments / I love you especially who buys my products!)  ^_^

But, Dear Denmark, some things I can never figure out, it’s grading system!!!

I try to think the perfect logic to explain why 12 is the highest and -03 is lowest.

Sure, I am not the smartest person in the world but I have some brains……. but, till, I just can’t figure that out.

Is it something people learn at math class, that I missed it because I was sick that date?   Mystery grows….

Oh! Hey neighbors  – Sweden, Norway, Finalnd, do you guys have the same system as Denmark??   I’m so curious!

    You want to know what makes it really crazy?

    This system is quite recent. One of the reasons they gave for changing to this was to make it easier for students to use their grades at foreign schools – in other words, they wanted it to be more understandable for foreigners.

    Our previous system had these grades: 13, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 3, 0

    The new system was made so the average of ones grades easier got higher, or a odd low grade woud not ruined the average

    The problem with the old system that getting 13, was near impossible, compare to getting an A, so yes the new system was made so a danish student coud have same level of grades as other countries.

    The new system can translate to the ECTS, wich is a common EU system.
