    My school reports 99% of the time had teachers describe me as conscientious and quiet (except my english teachers whose comments were mostly negative).

    Mine has never picked up on me being quiet. They use a template and just copy and paste the same information for pretty much all the students mine just basically said I was hardworking

    The most memorable comment I ever got on a school report was re. my efforts in PE: she prefers to keep her feet firmly on the ground. I was not a fan of apparatus work involving any height above 6 inches.

    The rest of my reports said that I was quiet and could do with speaking out more, but they were positive about my work. I always learnt through listening so being quiet was just part of my process.

    Every single one of mine had the word "conscientious" at least five times. All copy and paste stuff. I still don't know what conscientious means.

    I very rarely spoke in class too. I'm really shy and just wanted to stay under the radar as much as possible

    Being a good listener is sometimes the best way to learn. I had a similar dislike of gymnastics to this day i m unsure why i didnt get worse than a D in it.

    Most of my school reports were of two extremes, we got 3 a year and it would be like "oh she needs to participate more i class and speak up" so I took their feedback on board and spoke up in class and answered questions and spoke to people. My next report was quite negative because they then kept saying how I would constantly talk and "not give anyone else a chance" :hmmm:

    But one of the most memorable things was in year 9 it was the end of year reports, and I was in bottom set PE and we were doing something terrible like gymnastics and let's just say I'm not the most elegant of people and I have a strong dislike of PE. At the end of our lessons our PE teacher would always ask us to do a self-evaluation of what we did today, to which my response would always be something of the variant "I probably should have done more things today, or rather actually participated."
    So when it came to the grades on our reports, all of my friends who were in top set PE got like 6b-7c grades which was normal. I open my report an I got a 7a and I'm just there dying of bloody laughter :teehee:
