Oh, it’s a long story.
I wouldn’t want to torture my followers by hearing me rant telling you all.
Oh, it’s a long story.
so this guy right here is one class-a asshole
he stated, as above, that he had created this artwork
after he gained 100s of RTs and favs, it appeared on my timeline and i recognised it as the work of Vince Low, who created a series of pieces in this style, paying homage to celebrities, mainly actors, with dyslexia
I read through the replies to his tweet, including “wow”s and “i’m so jealous of your art skill”s, and only spotted one other person who realised this was in fact not this guy’s art, though he completely dismissed this person’s comment saying “that guy stole my picture”……
so, me already being sick of this art theft shit, as i see it every day on the web, piped up
and you can read above (excuse the bad quality) that he completely dismissed me, saying i was “jealous”
what angers me most is that he’s getting praise from 100s of people, and they will keep praising him because they won’t see the tweets where me and the one other person pull him up on it
ALSO, I GAVE THE FUCKER PROOF THAT IT WAS NOT HIS WORK. DOWNRIGHT, PROOF FROM AN ONLINE NEWSPAPER ARTICLE THAT THE WORK WAS BY VINCE LOW, AND THE LITTLE DICKHOLE STILL DENIED IT
some may say i’m overreacting, and that i shouldn’t use such foul language, but i am completely sick of this bullshit. i’ve had this happen to me in the past, and it made me less inclined to create art to share on this site.
when you create something you’re proud of, that you put a lot of work into, and someone credits it as their own and people believe them and continue to praise them, even after they’ve been shown proof that they’re lying.. it is one of the most crushing things to ever experience, i know.
so if you experience something like this, it may not make a difference, but you need to at least try to expose the assholes and voice the truth
and please signal boost!!!
we need to try and stop this bullshit, because it is a serious issue.
it gets less better.

UK grading system
Time to move to the UK
Dude I would kill for that grading scale
wait, so what is it in america then?
Anything below that is an F
is that real??
You damn fucking right. Honestly fuck the UK grading system why the hell would you pass anything at 35/100? Get real
The reason why is because the standard of education is different and you learn different modules, the education systems are different so you can’t compare them. It’s like comparing an apple to a car, it doesn’t make sense.
Not to mention, that they wrote isn’t entirely true, there isn’t any official grade boundaries it all depends on how difficult the exam was for other students as well.
For example, if every student in the UK for that exam board found the test extremely easy and a high percentage of students got high marks, the ground boundaries will be increased so it will be harder to achieve an A, where as if a high percentage of students found it extremely hard and the majority of people did not attain a high mark, the grade boundaries lower, also note that different schools use different exam boards thus grade boundaries between schools varies depending on the exam board but all are still accredited.
In 2013 only 7.4% of males and 6.8% of females achieved an A* during there A-levels, and that’s across all subjects. (source) Sure, you can get an E very easily but I doubt you’ll walk into a reputable university with a bunch of E’s, most universities want AAB or ABB which you can find out yourself by looking at the universities website.
In addition to that note that in the UK for your A-levels you don’t get an over all grade, you get a separate grade for each subject you studied which then can be translated into UCAS points which will be used when applying for university, for example they may want 120 UCAS points in Physics which is the equivalent of an A at A-level.

The methods of assessment between the US and UK are different too, that’s something you may also want to consider.
