    I'm a student in college. I submitted my assignments for one of my units and the teacher didn't provide very good feedback. I went and asked what I needed to change, and she basically said that only a certain percentage of students can get a Distinction because the other group isn't as good and it would "make them look bad".

    I need almost all distinctions this year. So I'm being told I may not be able to go to the uni I chose not because I didn't get the grades, but because the college doesn't want the other group to look bad? What the **** is that?

    Any advice? What can I do?

    I'm pretty sure that's who decided it should happen the teacher agreed it's ridiculous but says that's what she's told.
