Chad: so, what's the deal at school for [Cai], did they move her ahead a grade? I know last year they wanted to wait and see or something
Me: No, she was like... 1 point lower than they move you ahead.
Chad: wow, really?
Me: She was like a 7.5 average or something and they advance you at 8 on a 10 point scale. Something like that.
