    I must say Im a bit confused. I took the exam in English B SL last year, and my school gave me a 6 (This was my predicted grade, after they got to know my exam results). Now the IB results site sais I got a 7. I wonder what this is all about. Do they curve my grade according to those who took their exams just now? Seems a little bit unfair if that is the case considering we didnt take the same exam. What happened exactly? Is it just my school that messed it up?

    speaking about random, what about this erver. First I get a lot of server bussy messages. Then I simply kill and recreate my ISp conection and now I surf here without problems. I think the system somehow discriminates some IP's in favour of others.

    Sue her! I mean we've been teasing you about getting a 6 in English B SL for a year now, you can claim she has caused you trauma. Our school sucks big time, don't it. No wonder 7 out of 39 failed (not counting the 11 who dropped out).

    Our IB Coordinator said he was pleasently surprised that there had not been a single person who were late for teh exams. Apparently we are the worst class he have ever had when it comes to being on time for lectures though....
