There are many different independent factors that affect student grades. There are many physical situations like this, in which many different independent factors affect a phenomenon, and in most such situations, we encounter normal distribution -- in full accordance with the Central Limit Theorem, which explains that in such situations, distribution should be close to normal. However, the grade distribution is definitely not normal -- it is multi-modal. In this paper, we explain this strange phenomenon, and, moreover, we explain several observed features of this multi-modal distribution.
