Russian schools use a five-mark grading system: 5= excellent, 4=good, 3=satisfactory, 2=unsatisfactory. Russian teachers do not grade their students with a mark of 1. The Russian words for grades are the following: пятерка, четверка, тройка, двойка. By the way, a bill in five is rendered in colloquial Russian by 'пятерка' (five-spot), $ 10 bill is 'десятка'.
