Queries related to interpreting grades or understanding grading systems. This tag is not suitable for queries about improving grades or about the process of assigning a grade to an assessment item.

This tag concerns questions about grading systems and grades. Typical examples include comparisons between systems in different countries or understanding the significance of a particular grade. Questions about the process of assigning grades (or, from the student's side, having an assigned grade reconsidered) should use the tag instead. Questions about improving grades (e.g., by studying) should use the appropriate tag (usually ).
