Wow...Got to congratulate you for that! You should be proud of yourself. By the way, what grade did

i'd have challenged the 6. a highly respecteable mark, but i would have pushed for a seven simply because there is no-one for you to be compared to. how do they know that you wouldn't have got the highest mark had 400,000 people done the exam? they might have all go 0/60. i realise that this brings us back to the argument of the bell shaped scoring system, which i firmly believe in (that is, its existence, not its justification as a scoring system) but if we do believe in the bell (face it kids, we're in direct competition with each other....grrr...) then you should have got a four point five...halfway between the top an bottom, the only place your only mark could be. just rambling now. but i have a relevant point in there somewhere, i promise.
