so when you say 'factor" you mean "spf" we americans love our acronyms. I don't use sunblock, I tell people it's because I was already born with spf 50 (aka melanin aka black) but really I just don't like the way it feels on my skin.

at my school we had miderms and finals finals were worth 40% of your yearly grade and midterms were 40% of your semester grade which means they were 20% of your yearly grade

@Alexa: Yeah, we have some graded homeworks in Math and some assignments in other classes get counted. Do you guys do portfolios in all your classes??
Ohhh, we call it SPF. The F stands for factor and all, but no one calls it the words or anything. We Americans like acronyms. ;)
(Wow, I wrote this before I read Sami's post....I guess we Americans agree upon that :lol: )

@Sami: I agree, sunscreen feels grossss! I hate it. I usually only use stuff on my face which is a different kind of sunscreen so it doesn't feel as nasty. I do use some when I'm already burned though. Which luckily doesn't happen often. = )
You guys must have only done two terms, then, right?

yes you obviously do agree :lol: dont think ive used spf to refer to it in my life, it doesnt bother me wearing it, but i suppose i have the threat of lovely burning to force me into using it, i had 8 on today and im bright red again :/

portfolios are used for art based subjects and applied subjects, i do textiles which requires me to submit a portfolio of work to cover like 5 different specifications and its worth 50% of my grade this year and 25% of my overall grade other subjects just have some pieces of written work , like for history and english you do essays and such which count

Do you guyses bottles say Factor X? Ours always say SPF X so that might be why.
Yeah, if I had fairer skin I'd definitely use it more. Being French-Canadian, I was graced with the ability to tan very well. 8-)
I strongly suggest you use something much stronger than 8.....seeing as my dad is pretty much as dark as leather and he still uses 6.....
Ohhh, I get it now. That's what we would do protfolios for, too. Not many classes do them, though. My English class is doing them, which is weird, and then I had to do one for my writing workshop class which does make sense. That doesn't seem so bad, though.

to be honest i donr even know what they say lol, its just what im used to refering to it as....
i normally use 20 but we only have 8 in the house since its rare to need it in sunny old england :lol:

i love doing coursework for some subjects but i only have textiles which does it this year, im not the best when it comes to exams so it helps to boost my grade
