 10-21-2009, 09:03 PM #1 Member   Join Date: Apr 2009 Posts: 347 how to convert number grade to letter grade So in my country we have the following grades scale * 10 or 95-100 = (excellent) * 9 or 85-94 = (very good) * 8 or 75-84 = (good) * 7 or 65-74 = (almost good) * 6 or 55-64 = (sufficient) * 5 or 45-54 = (hardly sufficient) * <4 or <44 = (insufficient/failed) In secondary school (grades 7-12), any grade below 55 is considered a failing grade how would you convert it to A B C D and F grades?

General grades fall in to the B to C range, while the elite students maintain the A to B range. Reply
