Suppose I am writing about my test score:

1. I received a score of a "97".

2. I received a score of a 97.

3. I received a score of "97".

4. I received a score of 97.

5. I received a "97".

6. I received a 97.

7. I received "97".

8. I received 97.

Could all of them be correct?
I've got a score of 97 on my test

I've got 97 on my test
If the test is graded on a letter-grade basis:

1. I received a grade of an "A".
2. I received a grade of an A.
3. I received a grade of "A".
4. I received a grade of A.
5. I received an "A".
6. I received an A.
7. I received "A".
8. I received A.

Which ones should I use?

Hi,

I received an "A" sounds O.K, but actually most people would simply say I got an "A" because

it is the most likely to be said on informal occasions.

So,

5. I received an "A".
6. I received an A.

are wrong?
Hi,

I don't remember I said that 'I received an "A"' is wrong, did I?

It's fine. Have a look at my previous response again.

MeggPhaggSiouxSo,

5. I received an "A". 6. I received an A.

are wrong?
Received - is not wrong based on the meaning of the verb as explained in reference books.The fact of the matter is, sometimes difference does live between the book-reference meaning and idiomatic use which the books don't explain. chances are, you wouldn't find too many natives who would say " I received an A for English". As far as grade context goes, most people just say " I got an A for English...".
