I would like to create a java code that converts students numeric grades to a letter grade.
90 to 100 is A; 80 to 89 is B; 70 to 70 is C; 60 to 69 is D else is F
example target output:
Name: John
Score: 89
Grade: B

Name: Rob
Score: 95
Grade: A
 
and so on...

This reads like a school exercise?  If so EE cannot do your work for you but rther can help with specific problems and help you reach a solution.

What code do you have thus far?

I am trying to create a simple JAVA code but is not looping the way I expect itto loop.

the code is

while (true)
{
   System.out.print("Enter student name:  ")
   name = scan.nextLine();
   if ( name.equalsIgnoreCase("quit")) break;
   System.out.print("Enter score:  ");
   num = scan.nextInt();
     if (num >= 90)
     System.out.println("Student score is A")
}

You might try it like this

System.out.print("Enter student name:  ")
name = scan.nextLine();
while not  (name.equalsIgnoreCase("quit"))
{
   System.out.print("Enter score:  ");
   num = scan.nextInt();
   if (num >= 90)
         System.out.println("Student score is A")
   else if (num >= 80)
         System.out.println("Student score is B")
   else if (num >= 70)
         System.out.println("Student score is C")
   else if (num >= 60)
         System.out.println("Student score is D")
   else
         System.out.println("Student score is F");
    System.out.print("Enter student name:  ")
    name = scan.nextLine();
}

The way you have it that is what you will get.  

Your output doesn't match the code in either my example or yours.  Can you cut and paste the exact code.

What result do you want.
