You have indeed clarified this.

Many of us, myself included, had assumed this was just an extension of the practice of awarding "extra credits" to inflate grades. The scale we had used previously went from 0-4. In recent years it was stretched to 0-5. I had just assumed that the ratings were again inflated, this time to a scale of 0-7.

The grading system you describe is something totally different, and I assume was always based on a 7 point scale.

I think the point that many missed was that the girl was a brilliant student, no matter which grading system you use, and she might be deported, due to some technical problems with her residency here. Hopefully, they will sort this out and she will be allowed to stay.

If we need to deport anyone, we should start with the illegal aliens in our prisons. Not with the valedictorians....
