Imagine I took an exam and got 50 points. Which of the following sound right to a native English speaker?
- I gathered 50 points.
- I collected 50 points.
- I received 50 points.
- Obtained/garnered/attained/... anything else?
I know that "get" is too informal.
Besides that, do you gather/collect/receive/... 50 points from the exam? In the exam? At the exam?
I am employed at a Slovenian university, and I am constantly struggling with expressions like these.
Thank you very much!
