Because of my known bias against European futbollers,I was waiting for a more impartial voice to post almost those exact words

This next part is a free-for-all for ANYone with input:

Are there schools in your country where a student can fail an introductory course(even miserably so)...and then take a more advanced course in the same field the following semester??Before everyone jumps to the conclusion that we haven't made any improvements since the bastard Spaniard royalists left a huge mess 200 years ago,some of our better universities don't permit such odd-looking advancements.For the high schools and colleges that DO,they generally have a limit that a student may not graduate with 3 failed,in those cases,he/she must re-take one of the failures or pass a special,difficult make-up exam that demonstrates no less than a basic mastery of the course material.

Even so,it seemed very strange to me when I first encountered that after having grown up in a different system.It feels absurd when a student who scored 10% on her final exam--and rarely showed up to class--is taking a higher-level course which requires greater comprehension

Has estado un chupapija por los banqueros y imperialistas tras ocho años; ahora puedes bajar en tus rodilleras en tu tiempo libre, cobarde marica:

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
