Predicted grades
April 03, 2020, 08:36:58 pm
School kids are getting predicted grades for exams they don't have to sit. Surely we can do the same? Add in the exceptional conditions over the past couple of weeks when awarding yourself.

Personally I was definitely going to end my 6 year long battle with tuppence, and make a very impressive, quick, ground up ascent of Devon sent.

The kids get a grade based on previous results and predicted results. Kind of back in Rich Simpson territory...I could have , was strong enough etc etc, so a flash of mutation? have you any evidence that might of been possible? Personally I'll take Uniformicide at Targassone, last year I did the 8A bit and got lost on the 6B finish, this year I was strong, light then confined!!

Gimme a shout and I'll come and spot you. I'll have the psyche of a pit bull terrier by the time I'm let out!

Will do...although I will probably be injured and not so light by then.

Okay, I'll settle for finishing Ring of Fire and Complete Control. More realistic exam results.

I was supposed to be in bishop in a week or so. So I'll take a flash of Mandala 8A+, and since my fingers are currently feeling pretty good, a "4 sessions" ascent of Lucid Dreaming 8C. I've got video beta, so 4 days should have been enough to get it done.

Looks like several universities (poss inc our own) are going to implement a ďno detrimentĒ policy - whereby you cannot do any worse in your final assessment than your present grade average (our 3rd years will already have done >50% of their work).

Based on this principle - it means that whatever you climb this year - you can claim the grade for the hardest thing youíve climbed in the past. 👍 Iíll take that 7C now then thanks.

Unfortunately ukbQual will be applying an algorithm including ratio days in isolation:waistline subdivided by days of atrophy to the power Netflix.

I am afraid with smoothing your final assessment grade is 6B+.

Back around.

No, CBeebies isnít in the model Iím afraid. We could substitute the Disney Channel instead?

Personal statement is no good either, but homework grade point average could  be factored in.

I was also going to win the Edale skyline, and break the old course record on the old County tops race, but still finish a noble 2nd

A flash of the Ace and Voyager sit with a 15kg weight vest, they're both pretty piss anyway. Actually add the Lappnor project in 2 sessions to the list too.
