    I have to write about grades and there's a translation that I have to do.
    It says to translate "I got bad grades" and I don't know the word to put at the end?

    Help please

    "bekommen", the past participle (Partizip 2) is also "bekommen".
    In the meaning of to get=to be given; receive sth., the Perfekt is constructed with "haben".

    Perfekt (=present perfect): Ich habe [schlechte Noten]ᴬᴷᴷ bekommen.
    Präteritum (=preterite/simple past): Ich bekam [schlechte Noten]ᴬᴷᴷ.
    Präsens (=present tense): Ich bekomme [schlechte Noten]ᴬᴷᴷ.
    Futur I (future tense): Ich werde [schlechte Noten]ᴬᴷᴷ bekommen.
