Monash Law Boilerplate Letter

A letter arrived from Monash yesterday, congratulating me on my HD in Legal Process. The "we care about you" intention of the letter was hampered, however, by some interesting wording.

You will be pleased to know that your result of 80 HD placed you in the top 5-10% of students who achieved a High Distinction standard in this unit.


Now, a HD at Monash is anything 80+. If I just got 80, how is it possible for me to be in the top 5-10% of students who achieved a HD? I love compliments and congratulations as much as anyone, but boilerplate flattery? No thanks.
