All positive and negative skill levels in Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Knowing the positive and negative skill levels of your students is important because it allows you to pick and choose how you want to approach increasing those skills. As with any previous title in the series, each student will have a varying skill level in the basic skills of the game (sword, axes, spells, and so on). Typically players will see their students’ skill levels ranging anywhere from E, D, C, B, A, and even S—the highest rank available for skills. The rank of each skill will determine how many abilities and weapon types that unit can use.
