    I scored 90 marks IN/ON the test.

    This is not my homework.

    Which of the following is correct and if both are correct ,do they have same meaning?

    1:- I scored 90 marks IN the test.
    2:-
    I scored 90 marks ON the test.

    Thanks for replying.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Here in the United States, it seems that most people prefer the preposition "on":

    "I'm so happy. I got an A on my exam."

    "The mark / grade on my exam was a B."


    In the United States, the traditional marks (grades) are:

    A outstanding
    B very good
    C average
    D passing
    Fail no credit
