German grades

A note on german grades: They are of numerical value, in the range 1 ... 6. One is best, six worst. For more flexibility in grading suffixes + and - are possible. Numeric only indication of a suffix is addition/subtraction of 0.3 to/from the base value. Rough translations:

1 very good
2 good
3 satisfactory
4 enough/sufficient
5 unsatisfactory/poor
6 inadequate
