So a degree where someone barely passes is just as good as one for someone who never dips below 70% over there? Or do you have the class system for degrees in 'Merika as well?
Nope, but your GPA will determine whether or not you graduate with honors (and what tier). The actual degree is the same for all.
Well that's what I mean, here it's like, 40% 3rd class honours, 50% 2.2, 60% 2.1 and 70%+ is a first class.
Do you not take much stock in what honours your get? Here a third class honours is probably worth less than the paper it's printed on, you won't really be getting anywhere unless you get at least a 2.1.
