Scoring 100% In English - As If!

a number of students are celebrating getting 499/500 or 99.8% only to find that there was someone who maxed everything. Yes, people even got 100% in English. I was stupefied. It wasn't possible.

And yet, the world of social media is deluged with misspelled words, bad grammar and unintelligible sentences. This is true of English and probably all other languages. The one that irritates me the most is swapping "loose" for "lose". It really gets my goat.

Since 100% has been achieved, I am waiting for next year when someone scores 101. Then we will really have lost it.
