    It's grade "A"!/ this is "A"!

    When something we hear sounds particularly convincing or funny, we in Russian might say Это "5"/This is "5" ("5" is the best grade in Russian schools). Do you say anything similar in English? For example:

    It's grade "A"!
    This is "A"!
    If it's not too much trouble to you, could you please correct any errors I might have made in this post?

    "It's an A-plus!" might be possible in some situations.

    You might hear, for example, "I'd give that a ten!" (as on a scale of one to ten). And I would give your post a TEN.

    "A-number one" is also heard.

    Or number one.
