    In the US we say grades, marks is more from the UK, but I am not sure if they use grades as well. Hope it helps!

    Coincido con Sarab sobre usar grades para calificaciones, como sinonimos tenes score, aunque se usa mucho mas grade.
    Para asignaturas por lo general se usa course, sin embargo, tambien podes usar class o seminar. Todo depende del texto que estes escribiendo.

    In the UK ------ in the majority of cases

    Any work done in class or for homework is normally given a mark out of ten........ 6/10

    End-of-term and end-of-year examinations set in the school by the teachers would be given a percentage mark , out of a hundred, ......e.g. 63%

    The external examinations which are taken at 16 , GCSE, and 18, A-levels, etc are given grades, usually A - E

    University exams are usually given a percentage during the course. The final degrees are given as ....... first-class, second-class divided into 2.1 and 2.2, and third -class, and also as either Honours or Ordinary Degrees

    However individual schools and universities have their own systems so it can be variable.

    Hope that helps even if a litle late.

    Si lo quiere en español, pidamelo, solo al final me di cuenta

    In los estados unidos dicen grades. nunca dicen marks. Subjects son parte de un course. Por ejemplo un English course con el subject de punctuacion.

    Normalmente la palabra score significa una marca numerica y la palabra grade significa una marca alfabetico.

    Ejemplos: "What was your grade on the test?" "I received an A (grade) on the examination. I got a score of 95"
