    This is referring to a college or school, calculating a maximum something or other. Help, please.

    The ______ are calculated on a basis of a maximum of about ten. Is this much correct? It is the nota(s) that I'm having trouble with.

    "Grades are calculated based on ten (10) as maximum grade"

    Hi CArol... and welcome to the forum

    Las notas se calculan a base de diez como nota maxima = grades are calculated based on "ten" being the highest score / grades are calculated using "ten" as the highest score

    Hello Carol,

    This means that the way of assesing is marking the exams with grades that go from 0 to 10 being 10 the best grade.

    In my school this was the way of marking the exams:


    8, 7 = NOTABLE

    6 = BIEN

    5 = SUFICIENTE --- if you are below 5 you fail your exam

    4,3,2'30 = INSUFICIENTE

    0, 1, 2'30 = MUY DEFICIENTE

    Hope this helps,

    En español no se dice 'en base a' sino 'con base en' si se quiere traducir 'based on'.

    You could just say "Grades are calculated out of ten". Individual grades would then be described as "4 out of 10", "7 out of ten", etc.
