This is a certificate I got when I was in high school. Every year there are contests in all subjects for high school students (those who passed the province-wide contest will go on to the city-wide or nationwide contests). I got a second prize in the province-wide one and a third prize in the nationwide one, so I want to know what I can call my awards.
I’ve always wondered what “good student” means.
Is it in reference to a student who doesn’t make waves, never misses a lesson, always on his/her best behavior, doesn’t disrupt lessons, etc… or a student who actually excels at the subject?
Because as God is my witness history knows a lot of hell raisers who would later become prominent scientists. =)
It’s for students who excel at the subject, OTS. When I was in high school, I also took part in the same contest as Abc123’s; it’s full of phrasal verbs and idioms, things I hate the most. As a side note, if you get a national prize, you wiill be automatically admitted to many universities without taking a university entrance exam.
