Are they trying to drive me insane?

My kids just got home from their 27th half day of the school year so far and hit me with their lastest marks.

Mikey: I got back my french compo and I got 4 3 2 3 4 2 4 1 4 4 5 2 3 1 4... on question 1. But it was the fourth best in the front half of the class even though she didn't correct all of the compos yet.

me: wha...? huh?

Mikey: Honest. She said that question 2 won't count on our final but only if we have three more subs before the end of the month and let's face it, it's Bialik. We'll have three subs by the end of the week!

me: But what was your mark?

Mikey: What do you mean? I told you. It's like an 84%.

me: But you have a bunch of 1's... you're not making any sense.

Mikey: I know but we can only get marks in increments of 17.5% so it was a 34% or a 76% so she gave a 84% because it was early dismissal and she was in a good mood because her niece is getting married to a doctor.

I'm starting to think that Mark Zuckerberg invented this 'Quebec only marking system' as a joke on Facebook. Kind of like poking only stupider.
