I got a score of 20 in that course.

I scored 20 in that course.

My score was 20 in that course.

Hi,

As you know "score" is used in the US but I think we should use "grade" in the above sentences because "score" in the US is mainly used for exams and tests not for the courses.

Do you Americans agree with me that we should replace "score" with "grade" in the top three sentences?

Thank you.


Sorry if I don't thank you more than once. I don't want to bother you by filling up a thread with multiple thank yous.

Here in the US, a number would be a score on an individual test, or exam. But for the whole course, a letter grade is given, A - F.

I don't think you would just give a number 20 - because it depends what that is out of.
20/20 is excellent.
20% not so good! Shame on you
