Is this the right way to ask for someone’s score in a test?

Question by dd: Is this the right way to ask for someone’s score in a test?
I heard that the test results are out. How did it go for you?

Best answer:

Answer by Nightrider
You will get the answer: “I did OK”.
Why should it be of any concern to you as to what the other person did.
The question would be more like: “I did 65%. How did you do?” Now, if you are prepared to volunteer your information first, then the other person may or may not give you theirs. That’s the way it goes.

    I agree with Nightrider. Most of the time, people are not that forthcoming about their test scores and they tend to feel it is a privacy issue. I know that regardless if I got a great score or not so great score, I want my scores to be private. So A) I won’t sound conceited for getting a good score and B) I won’t sound like a moron for getting a not so good score! If the person is a close friend, then usually exchanging test is a simple way of handling this. Good luck!

    there is no polite way to ask. it’s none of your business. if you’re close enough to the person, they will share it with you because they want to. you cannot ask without being rude.
