Default Re: Epic Grades

Do you mean first in terms of overall grades or something different entirely? I'm also curious to actually see these grades (i.e. give some percentages for subjects), but congratulations regardless. :D
a.k.a =/= e.g. =/= i.e
astronomy is completely different from astrology please don't confuse them;
cosmology is different from both astronomy and astrology so don't confuse that either;
the LHC is not a 'black hole machine', 'atom smasher' or any variation thereof;
Antonín Dvořák was a romantic period composer famous for composing the New World Symphony and his surname is pronounced DVOR-zhahk; August Dvorak was an American psychologist who co-created the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard and his surname is pronounced DVOR-ak;
& is called an ampersand, not an 'and sign' or anything;
do not confuse the ampersand with the treble clef;
it's etc., not ect.;
I won't even bother outlining proper apostrophe usage;
it should not be octopi but rather octopuses or octopodes if you feel particularly pedantic: octopus is not a second declension Latin noun and thus does not decline to octopi;
whom is used when it is the object of a pronoun or with the indirect object;
oddly enough, if you sprinkle pi around with some numbers and symbols it doesn't actually look mathematical or clever;
the suffix is -ful, not -full: powerful, painful, joyful.
