Usually, at institutions in the U.S., a D+ is a passing grade. However on a 4.0 scale it carries only one quality point. Very often, students who fail to maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average may be placed on academic probation, so a D+ doesn't really help a student.
Technically, a 'D' is passing, but it's a sort of a we-don't-really-mean-it pass. A grudging pass, or perhaps a mercy pass. Or, it can be an “I don't ordinarily fail students, but you're testing my faith” pass. D's make some level of sense if you believe that a 'C' is an average grade.
This is an above-average score, between 80% and 89% C - this is a grade that rests right in the middle. C is anywhere between 70% and 79% D - this is still a passing grade, and it's between 59% and 69%
|Marks||Letter Grade||Grade point|
A passing percentage is 70% or higher. Each college has policies with respect to grades for transferred coursework. You should check with the college you plan to attend to determine its specific grade-posting policies. * All grades above a 69.5% are considered passing.
Letter Grades. A+, A, A- indicates excellent performance. B+, B, B- indicates good performance. C+, C, C- indicates satisfactory performance. D+, D, D- indicates less than satisfactory performance.
The letter grade D is considered passing since it lies between 60-69%. Any grade that is above 60% is considered passing in college.
When you start at university, any mark over 50% is a great grade. Getting a mark over 50% means that you are beginning to understand the difficult work of your degree. Getting over 60% is excellent because it means you have demonstrated a deep knowledge of your subject to the marker.

B+ is equivalent to 87% to 89%. It's also equivalent to a 3.3 GPA. Because it indicates good performance, B+ students have good chances of gaining admission into a number of good colleges and universities.
Is a 3.0 GPA good? A 3.0 unweighted GPA means that you've earned a B average across all of your classes. This is the national average GPA for high school students, but it may be slightly lower than the average GPA of high school students who plan on attending college. 16.1% of schools have an average GPA below a 3.0.
