So, one of my friends is a teacher, and, for one of their recent assignments, one of the teacher's students turned in this:
What should my grade be?
The teacher has no idea what this could possibly mean. Do you?
Note: A couple rules.
You don't need to brute-force the ciphers. Any keys or information required to decode them will be given. I will not accept an answer that has decoded a cipher with brute force.
The answer is an answer to the question posed at the bottom of the paper. A correct solution will include every step of the way required to solve the puzzle. (This is a multi-step puzzle, if you can't tell.)
Hints will be added every once in a while.
There are two possible places you can start in.
Hint #2 (may require the solving of a puzzle to understand)
convert the + to what it means and try vigenere
also, convert any numbers you may have into words as well
