hey jashan, this is from the internet.
In education, grading on a curve (also known as curved grading or simply curving) is a statistical method of assigning grades designed to yield a pre-determined distribution of grades among the students in a class. The "curve" in question is supposed to be the "bell curve", the graphical representation of the probability density of the normal distribution (also called the Gaussian distribution), but this method of grading does not actually make use of any specific frequency distribution such as the bell-shaped normal distribution.
Basically, for example, top 10% of the class for a certain exam gets As, the next 10% gets the B+es and so on. This is done to 'group' ppl into the classes of honours. So for example like lets say, even though the exam is really easy and everyone gets like above 70 or 80, not everyone will get an A grade since this method is used.
So is it used in Kings? Thanks.
