Get high marks (in a sentence)

Postby Multiturquoise » 2018-01-17, 23:03

Not completely sure about the Greek one, but I'm sure about the others.

(en) I'll go to university tomorrow in order to get high marks at my supplementary exam.

Please clarify "supplementary exam": does this mean an exam that is taken after a student has failed (or missed) a previous exam? On that assumption, attempting American English, (Mexican) Spanish, and Estonian. If you don't think my American English version is equivalent to your original meaning, then my Spanish and Estonian are probably questionable as well....

You’re absolutely right. That’s what I meant, and your sentence in American English is equivalent to my original meaning. Shall I delete my version?

It's probably fine for British English, although I don't know whether or not it would be the best way to say it and I'm not sure about the grammatical differences. To me it sounds close to right, if not correct, for British English. Something closer to the American version may or may not be used there, I just don't know. I would leave it for someone else to verify.

+Võro, Livonian. I'm not sure if the word takaneksäm is correct; I don't know how to say this kind of exam in Võro and the dictionary only has the word eksäm in general, so I'm extrapolating based on the other Finnic languages.
