In UK schools, A:80-100, B:70-80, C:60-70, D:50-60, E:40-50, <E = fail .
I've no idea how it works in Romania though [?].

...I shouldn't complain to much school in the UK is probably harder then here anyways.
hehe that means I must have got about 22% on the actual exam on my P6. We did do the module in about 2 weeks though .Originally posted by Dj Sneaky Whiskers
In practice, the grade boundary for an A rarely falls below 70 (except on perhaps the 6th Pure Exam, if you take it)

A grade scale system is a standardized way of assigning numerical values to letter grades in order to measure academic performance. It is used to determine a student's overall grade for a course or academic program.
The grade scale system typically assigns letter grades A, B, C, D, and F to represent different levels of achievement. In this particular system, A is equivalent to 10 points, B is equivalent to 9 points, C is equivalent to 8 points, and so on. The final grade is calculated by adding up the points earned for each letter grade and dividing by the total number of courses taken.
A grade scale system provides a clear and consistent way of evaluating student performance across different courses and institutions. It also allows for easy comparison and understanding of grades by students, parents, and educators.
One potential drawback of a grade scale system is that it may not accurately reflect a student's true understanding and mastery of the material. For example, a student who receives a B in a course may have a solid understanding of the material but may have struggled with a few assignments, resulting in a lower final grade. Additionally, some argue that assigning numerical values to letter grades can create unnecessary competition and pressure among students.
Yes, there are many alternative grading systems, such as pass/fail, competency-based, and narrative evaluations. These systems may focus on different aspects of a student's performance and provide a more comprehensive understanding of their skills and abilities. However, the grade scale system remains the most commonly used method of evaluation in many educational institutions.
