Thanks suzi and hyperpresto.That’s full marks. Or five out of five.
“Four over five” might be a way of saying a fraction when teaching fractions and multiplication etc, but not when referring to scores/marks.Thanks suzi and hyperpresto.
In the context of exams, that is how I have always said. However, I have heard some non-native speakers say 4 on 5 and I might have heard 4 over 5 but I could be mistaken.
By the way is American English any different?
Yes, either written out as "five to five" or "5 - 5". (Or 29 to 29 as shown below):In a film review or something similar:
'Five out of five'
'Five stars' (stars are always out of five, except for one or two obtuse publications)
In football (soccer, or rugby union for that matter) it would be 'five-five' or 'five-all'
In cricket it would be 'five for five' (congratulations to the side bowling!)
All of these would usually be written '5-5'
You really need to tell us what kind of score you're talking about: a score on an exam, or a score in a sport or game?How to read a score of e.g 5/5?
And I'm happy to report that OHIO STATE ROUTS MICHIGAN was 50–14.Yes, either written out as "five to five" or "5 - 5". (Or 29 to 29 as shown below):
I've never heard that version. There is a non-standard version that you might hear in India and South-east Asia that I might just include for information - not as any kind of recommendation at all - 'five upon five'.I would be more likely to say "five of five."
