On the programming end, there's 4 catagories; like 1-60 produces a D, 61-85 produces a C, 86-95 produces a B, and 96-100 produces an A. And B or A are NEVER generating. So I'm trying to figure out if it was a QA test, are the odds of this happening outstanding enough that the programming end should be looked into .
Thanks everyone for your help in advance.
