Even I got A+ and my English grammar is horrible (I am not a native English speaker). The questions however were more to do with spelling/vocabulary than grammar.

Those eggcorns will get you!

A+ Kind of sad that's considered the "top 1%", but hey, it gets it forwarded on Facebook when people think they're geniuses (genii).

Nothing worse than a dangling participle...

A+

I took the test again. This time I intentionally missed most (but not all) questions to see what score it would give me. At 30% it told me I needed to try harder since the test isn't that hard.

Another 100%er A+ Genius here. As an engineer I can spell and use proper grammar. I guess that is kind of rare for the typical engineer. Funny thing though, in college I could never get above a C in any English course, even if I really did try. However, I discovered the pass/fail grading in freshman year and from then on all my general ed courses were study just enough to get a C. Save the real studying and grading for the courses that mattered.
