Hi,

I'm not sure about the use of the word "erase" here. Is there another better word?

-The grade he got for the midterm exam was completely erased by what he did in the paper.

Thanks!

    We need more information.

    Did the term paper sabotage a good grade? Or did it eradicate a bad one?

    Let us know and we can make suggestions.

    You are almost there:

    The excellent grade he got on his midterm exam was completely sabotaged by the appallingly bad term paper he submitted later.
