It looks like you are rounding wrong. If there is a reminder, round toward zero:

stat of 2 is (2-10)/3 = -2.6666 rounded toward zero is -2

stat of 12 is (12-10)/3 = 0.6666 rounded toward zero is 0

Don't consider whether the remainder is greater that 0.5 or not, always round toward 0 (aka round up if the result is negative, round down if the result is positive).  A result of 2.9999 would still be 2. A result of -2.9999 would still be -2.
