That little shove being promises of Kaminari-related fangirling, of course. ^_^

And for the record, itís hard to read, but the grade is a 71 (out of 100). I donít know how schools in other countries - or perhaps even other states - handle grading, but in my experience in a high school setting, anything below 65 is failing. Hence, itís not really a fantastic grade at all. But if everything up to that point has been failure, then yeah, it DOES show improvement and willingness to put in effort.

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

Also, if you enjoy the comic, please vote for "Rain" on TopWebComics!

In my school, 50 percent of the points gets you a pass. We're lucky. :D

Given how closely Rain is looking at the paper, I have a feeling her math grade may not be the only thing of her's that's failing. Theory: upcoming story arc in which Rain gets glasses! ...Or, given her eye situation, maybe a monocle.

Seriously, though, this page is mostly expository, with some Aunt Fara - Brother Arthur interaction. Fara's face in panel 2 reaffirms her genuine concern with Rain's performance in school; not only is she her guardian, but she's also a teacher herself. Funny: Rain may be excellent at "passing", but she's having trouble "passing" math! ...Okay, maybe that wasn't very funny. Back to the page at hand, we get to see more of Brother Arthur being the "friendly teacher" type, the incorruptible sort who values hard work and wants all his students to pass. As far as Fara and Arthur go, they get along right now; I wonder, though, if the parent-teacher relationship and the teacher-teacher relationship will coincide or contradict at all. I definitely look forward to see Brother Arthur's personality becoming more fleshed-out.

And that's about it. As I said before, a mostly-expository page with very little emotional drama going on. Not to say that this makes it a bad page - such pages are often necessary - just to say that I can't go very deep into what's going on.k

My state (California) has a amazingly low standards-
90-100%- A (****ing amazing, apparently)
80-89%- B (Still great)
70-79%- C (What you are expected to do)
60-69%- D (A bit below our standards, but whatever)
0-59%- F (The only "Failing" grade)

My high school is 60-plus is passing (D or above). And F is just failing, so as long as you don't have an F you're passing lol I feel like this is because of other schools nicknames for us ("Baked Academy", a lot of people are on drugs or drunk, or even 14 year-old kids who are dealers), but it's a lot like this in other places.

At mine school, anything below 77 is failing.

Yeah she gave her a push all right by not letting her do Kaminari related stuff and a tutor. As far as i understood it in my high school a D was passing though not very well. In my college for the class to count it must be a C or better. So she would have been passing at my school though not by much.

In England -
90%+ is an A*
80%+ is an A
70%+ is a B
60%+ is a C
(anything below that is a fail)
50%+ is a D
40%+ is an E
30%+ is an F
Anything below that is a U (ungradeable).
