grading... Pfffft.. Hated it while I was in school, and still hate it.

Now the only thing that matters is whether it works, or it doesn't. There's what you can do, and what you can't do, and knowing the differences between the two is the pathway to success. XD

(I had about a low B average. I aced... ACED... every test put in front of me but gave zero fucks about homework)

Pretty much 100. 90 is the lowest.
As in whenever I have homework or a daily grade, I feel l need to get an A+ since it's easy. And whenever there's a test, I feel I need an A+ since it counts much more. Although I still get lower As and Bs and other dissatisfactory grades at times, A++s are what I always aim for.
To be honest, I'm not sure if I should get out of this habit or not. Working hard and making good grades has always been impartial to me, but I also don't want to be a slave to a bunch of letters or spend too much time always studying and worrying about GPAs. I'm in high school right now, and although I'm keeping up all A+s now, I'm scared of the time when I won't be able to do that for all my classes, either from being overwhelmed or running out of motivation.

the grading system i went under decided by percentage, best 5% A. next 10% b, etc.

grades, as a result, always felt absolutely meaningless, not that it has to be such a system for that to be true, a bit simple to think a digit or two can describe a skill with any accuracy at all.

Agreeable.

EDIT: And to answer to OP like I meant to in the first place, 76%. (edit over)

Let me give you guys a personal anecdote (painful I know, read it if you want, it all ties in).

In high school, I ended with a 2.6 GPA, nothing to brag about.

The thing was, I tried at classes I was interested in, and for high school, they weren't as in depth as I wanted them to be. I had the english department talking, I guess, because by halfway through my senior year they all cut me slack on everything, even though they had discovered I was giving book reports on books I had not read. I took "research studies" my junior year, wrote my first quarters paper and my second quarter's paper in the same night.

Got tagged for not turning in half my homework in the first quarter, got a C for not turning in any homework in the second quarter. I had cited everything properly, it was a good paper.

My sophomore year, I took biology, as per high school requirements. I made some of my best friends in that class, but halfway through the year my teacher showed me a chart and said "Look, no matter where I put you, your grade stays the same and everybody's grade around you goes down."

I told her to put me at the table in the back by myself, she did, everything went fine, I kept getting 90-100 on biology.

With math, I found myself on the accelerated path and was struggling. I almost failed AP statistics my senior year, but passing it by 2% was a victory for me and may have been pity from my teacher. Words are easy. Numbels is hard.

Either way, I made bad decisions on colleges, took a full ride to a private college that collapsed, went back and tried to take the Extended High School university route, should have just gone to community college where they pass you the same as I got passed in high school.

It really comes down to how difficult the class is.

If I get a C in a class that I placed out of, something needs fixing.
On the other hand, if I get a B- on a difficult class I'll be fine.

Overall, 90.

During highschool I stopped caring and just did enough work to pass, anything extra was a pain: During that time, 70 was decent.

An 80 to 90 would be okay, but again I got Asian parents so 90 would probably be best.

lets see, if it was a grade for a class I'm good with a D, or within the 60% if it were for a test I say 80% and up and if it were for a standardized test I say 90% and up since those were usually my results since the 4th grade.
