I'd like to see how the conservatives grade them: @ThePotatoWalrus @jvikings1 @Conservative Elector 2 @Reagan04 and also @Patine who is critical of both parties. 

Calling @ThePotatoWalrus a "conservative" is generous regarding the coherence, sensibility, rationality, and consistency of his ideology. :P

I'll have a look at this later today. I'm posting from work.

Also, here in Canada, from about Grade 7 onward, and certainly in college and university, we use percentile grading, not letter grades. What range of percentile grading does each letter grade equate to?

We also use percentiles. I converted it in the following way, although I'm not sure if it's completely accurate:

A = 100

A- = 95-99

B+ = 91-94

B = 90

B- = 85-89

C+ = 81-84

C = 80

C- = 75-79

D+ = 70-74

D= 70

D- = 65-69

E+ = 61-64

E = 60

E- = 56-59

F = 0-55

Thanks!

You're welcome! I changed it a little to make more sense in cases like 65, for instance. Again, I'm not sure if it's correct, but it will do I guess XD

I've never seen a letter grade of E. 

That was the lowest grade when I was in grade-school, haven't seen it since.

I assumed it exists because other people used it.. XD

I'm not sure if it does exist but it makes a conversion from the percentage method easier.. (at least for me, since 55 and below here is a failure, while 56 means you BARELY passed. I'm not sure if the same applies to Canada though..)

In the United States it’s usually something like this:

A+ = 97-100

A = 94-96

A- = 90-93

B+ = 87-89

B = 84-86

B- = 80-83

C+ = 77-79

C = 74-76

C- = 70-73

D+ = 67-69

D = 64-66

D- = 60-63

F = 0-59

There are no E grades here in the United States (at least I haven’t heard of them, so I assume they don’t exist in high school or up)
