6 errors            = 9 pts = B

7 errors            = 8 pts = C

8 errors            = 7 pts = D

9 errors            = 6 pts = F

10 errors or more= 5 pts = F

 

 

BKU Grading Scale (5%)

Less than speed          = 10 pts = A+

Equal to speed            = 9 pts = B

Up to 10 over speed     = 8 pts = C

Up to 20 over speed     = 7 pts = D

Up to 30 over speed     = 6 pts = F

More than 30 over speed = 5 pts = F

 

BKU = number of times backspace key used
