Why do letter grades go a, b, c, d, f? Why not e?
F is for "fail".
Cause my name starts with E and everyone hates me lol just kidding
My theory is:F is just 'below average'. It could have an 'E' if that was your average grade for the school. In my district we don't even had d's, just A's, B's, C's, and F's. So your school's average is probably a D.
Ironic, isn't it? Haha! ... A - 90-100%, B - 80-89%, C - 70-79%, D - 60-69%, F - 50-59%, 59% = fail, fail starts with f, so no need for an E.
just to be unique I guess. kind of lile the same reason why we use a different metric system. miles vs kilometers, lbs vs kilos, letter grades vs number grades.
E= Epic Fail
They hate the letter E! They are so racist to the E!! It the fact that e could mean excellent
