Those who are in Grade A can enjoy a few privileges. Those who are in grades B, C, and D can not go against A. The lowest grade is F, if anyone gets zero votes they will be in Grade F. Grade F is the polar opposite of Grade A which means that person will be an outcast and become the target of school violence.
