    Default A/b Student

    Dear Teachers,

    A. I would suggest getting him involved in some type of skating club if you have one near by.
    - Why don’t we add “s” to “type”?

    B. My son is an A/B student.
    - What does "A/B student” mean in this situation?

    Thanks a million

    Why should we? There a several types, but the one he gets involved in will belong to only one.

    Pretty good, but not brilliant. A is presumably the highest grade (though some examination bodies award an 'A*' grade), B is above average. A teacher is likely to say this to the parent of a student who could get an A but is likely to get a B unless he/she works harder.
