Was it a failing grade?
Was the grade given for an exam? if so, written? oral? a homework assignment? the overall performance?

Is the subject relevant? If so, [LTPF list of subjects], please.

Did he cheat?

Did he deserve the failing grade because of demonstrating lack of knowledge of the subject? or just common sense? or something else?

Did he contest the grade being assigned to him? And when the school (or someone else?) rechecked the decision, they found out something showing that the failing grade was deserved? Something he did after the grade was assigned? During the checkup process?

Let me see if I've got this right:

1. He got a 'fail' appreciation for his overall performance

2. ... in a subject that is not relevant

3. Subsequently, some other actions of him confirmed that he wasn't so bright.

Correct?

If so, did he fail in some other area, not related to his study? Did he somehow show that he didn't know basics like reading or counting to ten?

lodge a complaint?

did he say he shouldn't have got a low grade because he had lifted the information from an expert? copied from another student who had passed? got another student to do his paper?

Did he change it in order to: change its meaning? Keep the meaning but change the words? Did he inadvertently change something he didn't intend? Or neglect to change something he intended to change? Plagiarism relevant?

Or maybe to a B? Even an A, but then a bit edged? Did he erase the vertical bar in the letter F to produce a number 3 (he wanted to present a numerical grade to someone)?

Did he try to change it in a different colour pen? Did he change it in such a way that it had obviously been changed? Did he fail to realise that grades are stored in records so just altering it on his paper wouldn't change his recorded grade?

I don't remember if this has been asked, but are we talking about the student, or the teacher? (deserving the grade)

(I'm not familiar with the grading system for teachers, but one must exist)

Good job Sundowner and Enjay
His report card had an F on it, so he just added a horizontal line on the right side to make it a block A, but our Rhodes scholar used a different colored ink pen, so his mother was not impressed.
