    People take some time to adjust to a new education system and everyone is different so comparing isn't really going to help you. Does the feedback make sense and do you know what you have to do to improve? When I moved education systems for the first time I failed my first English literature test even though it was on a book I had studied before and done well with so you're not alone

    It’s a pass, but it’s not good enough. Especially if you’re aiming towards a 2:1 or a 1st in Literature.
