|English term or phrase: grade vs. mark|
|Is there a diffrence? Is grade AE and mark BE or are they interchangeable?|
|English translation:Not exactly the same (UK)|
A grade is a category: A, B, C, ... or 1, 2, 3, ...
A mark is more like a score: 17/20, 85/100.
Of course, they are parallel scales: e.g. all marks in the range 85-100 might merit grade A.
In the UK, major exam results in secondary school are given as grades. Individual essays, reports, etc., may be given marks or grades.
