9. ## Can someone explain me this?

I was always puzzled by the American grade system (in schools). In most parts of the world, grades are given as numbers. In Romania they range from 1 to 10, thus making easy the computation of the average (say 9,9 and 10 make 9.66). One must have the average greater or equal to 5 to pass. But how is the average calculated when grades are letters (A-F)? And what is the condition to pass?

Things are traditionally graded out of 100, or if not, then usually the score is converted to a percent. The levels vary from institution to institution, but generally 60-69 is a D, 70-79 is a C, 80-89 is a B, and 90-100 is an A, making approximately 60% the very minimum score needed to pass.

So I guess E is 50-59 and F 40-49... But I don't get how someone decides to transform D in a number when it varies from 60 to 69. I mean, it's teacher/professor's decision or there is a rule, in School S1, D is 65, in School S2 D is 69...?

There is no 'E'. Long story short, well, let's just leave it at that. 'F' is 0-59, and results in no credit at all for the course.

The exact numbers vary from school to school, and then again from professor to professor .
