I am writing a letter of recommendation for my student as he is applying for a master's degree to study in the UK. The GUIDANCE FOR REFEREES states that I should mention the grades of the applicant in the courses I taught him, as well as his rank in each one in comparison with other students (i.e., with how many students am I comparing the applicant?). If fact, I taught him five courses, and I need an example of how to properly state the required information without repeating the same sentence multiple times.

X attended with me class A (grade A), class B (grade B), [...] and class E (grade E).

Or your preferred variation of the above. However, you can also repeat the grade statement several times, possibly adding for each class details about the student's participation.

  • What about his rank in comparison with x students in each class? – catfour Sep 7 at 22:11
  • @catfour Within the parentheses as well. – Massimo Ortolano Sep 7 at 22:14

    @catfour class A (grade A, rank/total), etc etc? I think you're overcomplicating this. – Bryan Krause Sep 7 at 22:14

    Given that most places will also have transcripts for the student, it seems to be redundant generally. I'd only provide the information if asked. – Buffy Sep 7 at 22:53

    @Buffy I agree that it's redundant, but the OP says "GUIDANCE FOR REFEREES states that I should mention the grades of the applicant in the courses I taught him". – Massimo Ortolano Sep 8 at 7:01
