All categories are A, overall rating is B. How can that be?

The letter grading system is just a guideline. The KC system might be programmed to round up/down to determine the letter grades (ex, there's no A-, just A or B), but there are numbers behind it. So if you have to categories that were close enough to A that KC rounded up, but combined bring you closer to B on your cumulative score, then you'll likely see a B.

Or the system is just messed up.

Appreciate the response and the two alternative answers that offer choices based on logical reasoning or the system has emotional problems. Thanks.

This would make sense if out of 5 categories 1 at least had a lower rating (a B or a C).  U cannot have 5 A's that end up AVERAGING to a B no matter how close to a B are the underlying numbers.  This does not make any sense.
