Is it A for effort or E for effort?Best Answertichur answered four years agoA for effort or E for effort has nothing to do with spelling. “Old school” grades got confused with a newer, less objective system.
E – Excellent
VG – Very Good
G – Good
S – Satisfactory
F – Fail
A – superior
B – Above average
C – Average
D – Below average
F – Fail

A for effort and E for effort mean the same thing…superior or excellent attempt to learn.

Eeeeek! Look at how many E’s I was able to use in that last sentence! And, I am NOT exhausted.
Expressing my emotions and experience helps, extraordinarily.
