Writing Sample - disclose grade?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jan 13, 2014 3:29 pm

I've received a grade for my final memo which I've used for my writing sample - I did pretty well. My professor graded based on points out of 30 and I got 29/30 which based on the grade distribution, puts me at top 20% of my section. Should I mention this in the cover page of the writing sample or leave it out? Do employers want to know how the prof graded the memo or do they just judge it for themselves?

Don't mention it unless you got the best grade in the class.
