correct, i agree . If the Americans want to use their system it's ok with me but they should accept other translations., i.e. numbers which everybody understands even if some countries grade from 0 to 20 ( France) - 0 to 6 (Switzerland) aso. We use intermediate 4 ( which is passable, you passed, 4 .25 - 4. 5 - 4 .75 - aso. from 0 to 6. But to get a 0 you have to hand a white sheet over. or to have copied !
Below given figures are approximate:
5 is excellent ( more than 80% correct answers), 4 is good (70-80%), 3 (60-70%) is poor, but you pass the exam, 2 (less than 60% of correct answers) is bad, you don't pass it and you need to retake the exam. 1 is usually not given in Russia, so 2 is the worst mark.
So, I think A and B are 5, C is 4, D is 3, F is 2.
Hi Theron. i'm glad to see that DUO accepted my suggestion that ON PULUCHIL DVOIKO is now accepted as HE GOT A 2. Now DUO should also accept the other figures 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 as correct. Accepting only 2 doesn;'t mean anything. Yes an 1 is a catastrophic fail - we even give O ! - I f your general average is below 4 YOU DON"T PASS. but you can have ONE 2 if , with your other notes you get an average above or equal to 4. With twice a 2 you will never pass. We also quote with 1/4 - 1/2 and 3/4. i.e. 4.25 - 4,5 - 4,75 aso., \Regards
(In the USA) technically a D is a passing grade, since it is not an F. However, if the course is a pre-requisite for another course, it is usually stated that you need to get "C or higher" to satisfy this pre-requisite requirement. An F is worth 0 pts, D is worth 1 pt, etc, and A is worth 4 pts in computing one's GPA (grade point average). A GPA of 2.0 is usually required for graduation. So it's pretty close to the Russian system, but not quite.
We have the choice between plague and measles here. The Spanish to Russian course, which uses American Spanish ( most people in the americas soeak Spanish, not english) has zero grammar. That makes it extremely difficult. The English to Russian course has here again a totally illogic translation. The Spanish to Russian course translates correctly '2'.
It's courious. In Poland we use 1-6 grade system, so F is translated to 1, but you need at least 3 to pass. However, in higher education the grades are only 2-5, but with additional halves and 2 is the only one failing, so this translation would have more sense in this context.
