My first set of warning grades (grades received mid-term to let you know where your final grade is headed) covered the full spectrum of passing grades. No one officially explained the translation of these words into grades but everyone knew the best grades were High Honors and Honors. The most troubling grades were High Pass and Pass as those were B- or lower.
I needed to get my High Pass and Pass to Honors before the end of the term without dropping my Honors and High Honors grades. There was no other priority. It required studying during the day and not just at night. I spent less time studying in Mel’s room and more time on my own. The term ended and my grades were up. I was one step closer to college admission.
