“Came home at 3 o’clock. Had to do speech in assembly. Got 43% in Art”
Now, was I doing a speech to the outgoing students, to the possible newbies, or to the BP ‘student body’ as a whole?
Whatever I had to do, it looks like I was able to skive off early and get home by 3 o’clock in the afternoon. (“Skive” being a british slang term for avoiding responsibilities and/or work)
Is 43% good? I know if I had 43% of my mother-in-law’s lemon pie left that would be very good indeed, but I can’t be certain it represents a ‘pass percentage’ as far as my exams go.
