Record of achievement

eggs

#1

Did any of you get these at school? Mine is probably at home still somewhere. I think mine had a bit of blurb from a teacher saying “fopp’s best talent will go un-noticed because he’s so reticent”, which on reflection was quite prescient and a nice way of saying you’ll never amount to much.


#2

yeah, a maroon folder :confused:


#3

Binned mine exactly one month ago.


#4

that’s the very one, I imagine they are very age-defining


#5

Thought this was going to be a thread about excel formulas


#6

Every so often I find it, realise it’s just got my GCSE certificates in it, and hide it away again to be found and repeated.


#7

fuck knows. i managed to lose my degree.

hopefully no one ever asks me for the actual bit of paper or i’m in trouble.


#8

State of this.


#9

I forgot that it was just a national record of achievement, no room for all my international achievements


#10

There has to be a job out there for full time meme grammar/spelling sorter-outer.

Genuinely infuriates me.


#11

If you took that to one of those trophy engraving shops they’d definitely be able to whack an ‘Inter’ on there.


#12

FT…etc


#13

I think I only ever filled in three lines of mine, and that was on the train up to my university interview for Newcastle.


#15

Don’t remember having one.


#16

I saw this, or something very similar on Facebook yesterday, and was expecting it to be the motive behind this thread.


#17

Is not being on facebook something you can put in your record of achievement?


#18

In your DiS record of achievement? Certainly.


#19

I hate finding stuff like this - I had to ask for my university transcript the other day and got to relive the glory of how close I came to failing everything. Rad. I don’t need loads of bits of paper that tell me how badly I’m using my notional ‘potential’, cheers.


#20

Now they give babies a ‘red book’, starts earlier and earlier. I kind of want to lose it on purpose to prove that it’s all a load of shit


#21

at my last job they asked me to provide paper copies of all my qualifications. i brought my degree in and they were like, have you got your a levels and your gcses as well? and i said well i couldnt have got my degree without them. so they asked me to bring them in as soon as i could and i was like will do! and then worked there for three years and never bothered
