    Indefinite Articles [Grades]

    Hello everyone, I forgot how indefinite articles work for letter grades. Can someone please explain to me?

    An "A"
    a "A"

    an "B"
    a "B"

    an "C"
    a "C"

    an "D"
    a "D"

    an "F"
    a "F"

    which are corect and which are incorrect? Thanks.

    You'd normally say:

    I got an A/a B/a C/a D/an E/an F.
    or without using the article.

    Why do we use an F instead of a 'F'? Is it because it sounds like 'u' in the a.e.i.o.u. vowels?

    Not 'u' but 'e'.

    an F = [en ef]
