    "The grade i received isn't/ wasn't correct"

    Hello all,

    "The grade i received isn't/ wasn't correct"

    Which one I have to use if I want to tell my instructor my grade is still not correct ?

    Would you mind teaching me when to use isn't and wasn't for this case ?

    Please let me know if my message is confusing.

    Both are equally possible, since the grade both was not correct (at the time of issue) and still is not correct now.

    You will need to remember to capitalise the word "I" if you're going to email your tutor.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
