I *think* this is what you meant to ask, but if not, please feel free to edit again (especially in the body where I put in what I believe is what you had intended)

reworded to improve grammar and clarity; improved formatting (this is still inaccurate because the first half is really about non-PAE systems, but I've tried to make only edits that do not conflict with your intentions in writing the post -- feel free to edit again if you want to make more changes)

comment How to write a shell script to assign letter grades to numeric ranges?
@Tim You might want to add that this can be run as a single command from the shell: python -c "print (chr(75-max(5,int('0'+raw_input('Enter the number: ')[:-1]))))" ...But what's the deal with "E"? Is that a grade? :)

comment find only works with sudo?
@ManuelJoão What's the command you used before that didn't work? You said, "Instead of giving find the location to search for things I used only find things -type d and it worked without any problem." But find things or find things -type d do give the location--they tell find to search inside the directory things. What kind of output are you getting when it works? It should list all the files inside the things subdirectory of whatever directory you're in when you run the command. Is that what happens? And is that what you want? Typically one would use find ~ -name things.
