my grade from, of OR in?

Post by annahenglish » Sun Dec 16, 2018 7:30 pm

Hi,
I am writing an email to my professor asking about the results of an exam.
What is grammatically correct here?

"Could you please send me my grade from, of OR in Tuesday's reading exam?"

Somehow none of these options sound fitting to me.
Thanks in advance,
Anna

Could you please send me my grade of Tuesday's reading exam? :nok: NO!!
Could you please send me my grade in Tuesday's reading exam? :ok: maybe acceptable, but weird
Could you please send me my grade from Tuesday's reading exam? :ok: :ok: sort of ok

and, of course, the one you forgot...

Could you please send me my grade for Tuesday's reading exam? :ok: :ok: :ok: perfect

At least, all that is to my humble English ear. Maybe an American would think differently :roll:

I agree.

From and for are my preferred choices here. Although I prefer from, to me it feels better for things that have passed than for which I would prefer for present or future.

e.g. Do you think you will get a good for the exam next week?
