Sigh of relief

So, there was a point to all of those achievement tests and diploma exams I had to take throughout elementary school, junior high and high school. Apparently, the Malaysian Star has an article about how Alberta has the best schools in Canada. Here's an excerpt:

Alberta is one of the few provinces in Canada to administer standardised assessment tests for all students in the core subjects – reading, writing and mathematics – in Grades Three, Six and Nine. Alberta students scored the highest marks in reading and were among the top three in science and mathematics for the 2000 Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) tests. In the 2003 PISA they were number one in reading, second in mathematics and fourth in science.

I guess all I can say is, yay. Thirteen years of my life were spent very well :)
