# Grade systems in English-speaking countries

 Posts: 6 Add as FriendChallenge to a DebateSend a Message 12/23/2013 10:46:32 AMPosted: 4 years agoHi!In Sweden we have just a while ago changed the grade system to A, B, C, D, E, F. I thought it would be the same system as the system in English speaking countries. However it seems to be quite different still, and I would be glad if someone could try to explain what every letter stands for, for kind of grade. In Sweden A is the highest, B is quite high, C is average, D is quite low, E is lower and F is when you fail.

The one with the highest wins.

Wikipedia explains a bunch of variations: http://en.wikipedia.org... In one system, the top 7% of the class is an A and the bottom 7% is F. The letter E is almost never used as a grade. It's A, B, C, D, F. To compute averages, they are assigned 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 respectively.My college had a weird five point system. A is worth 5.0, B = 4.0, C = 3.0, D = 1.0, and F = 0.0.The Wikipedia article describes an 11 point system.
