How does ranks work?
Well, there are a few of ranking systems. The first is as seen in Chaos Fighters-Route of Land, but the complete rank would be L, F, E, D, C, B, A and S. By the time of Chaos Fighters II, the class system changed to L, F, E, D, C, B, A, S(uper), H(yper), U(ltra), X(treme), Y, Z. L stands of Learner, which means the fighter has just got his license and currently in training.
Then, in academics, the system used is D-, D, D+, C-, C, C+, B-, B, B+, A-, A, A+. Next, E means barely pass while F means fail. For higher learning institutions, there are additional grades for special situations. O means the student merely registered the course and dropped it later on when students still be able to change registered courses. W means the student withdrew the course after the time limit of course registration which has no bearing of GPA. X means the student is failed due to disciplinary problems, mainly cheating in exam, disrespecting the lecturers or fail to reach required attendance percentage which gives GPA penalty. H means the student registered and completed the course but the scores are yet to be entered into the system. A u next to the grade means the student followed the course without registering and being found out after the grades were announced. T means the student gets F due to incomplete grading, such as failure to hand in graded assignments. P means the grading has been postponed which is common when one could not finish writing a thesis. R means the student being rejected from taking the course.
For sports, the ranks are based on metals. The full list is Iron, Copper, Steel, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Palladium, Platinum, Titanium, Vanadium, Wolfram, Yttrium and Zirconium; but generally the list is modified by removing several ranks. This list will be used for the new Chaos Fighters: Cyber Assault-The Secret Programs.
