Student or Learner
Can I say "I got a distinction average for my postgraduate study"? If I write it on my cover letter, is that correct? Or I should say " I got average distinction" ? Is there any other formal words that I can use to replace the word 'got'? Thanks in advance!
My university use them as the grading system. I just google "distinction average" and find that some people say " I got a distinction average ". I don't know whether it is correct or not.
Susiedqq has given you excellent alternatives in post #2, but you should be certain that the term "distinction average" is familiar to those who receive the cover letter. I doubt that anyone in the US, for example, has heard that term. You could say that you graduated "with distinction." Another thing to consider is that grading systems differ from country to country; seventy to eighty is not considered exceptional in the US nor in many other countries. It is, therefore, better to keep these numbers to yourself, as they can easily be interpreted incorrectly.
Guys, thank you so much!!
