People just don't accept the fact that Bs are totally acceptable and in fact good grades. I mean come on.. in some subjects some of us can't get more then a B. Like math for me.. in college level math I got a B... I was surprised I even got that.

Some parents are strict and want their child to be the best, because like me, im just a trophey that my parents can show off. Not human, just a trophey. I know someone that got a 92% and her parents made her take it over during summer school. C R A Z Y

Well it is acceptable, but in the Asian community it is traditional for parents to push their kids to their limit. I personally hate it when others bitch about getting B's too...but that's the way our parent's and grandparent's generation was taught.

Yeah. I hate how the SAT pretty much decides your future. It's so retarded.

SATs didn't decide my future. I got a horrible score, but since my GPA was decent in high school I got into uinversity. I had to take enterance exams and I did fine on them.
