I have got a question about the grading system?

Apparently 'A' stands for "Amazing", 'B' stands for "Brilliant", 'C' stands for "Cool", 'D' stands for "Decent", 'E' stands for "Excellent" and 'F' stands for "Failure".

But how can an exam that has been rated "Decent" be considered anyhow better than someone whose exams has been rated "Excellent"?

    Your assumption of what the letters stand for is wrong. Therefore, your question is meaningless.

    I don't know where you got this from, but it's total NONSENSE. A does not stand for "amazing", and the other letters don't stand for the words you've used with them either. The standard alphabetical grading scale is tied to the standard 100-90-80-70-60-50 numerical scale. And on THAT scale, a D is barely a passing grade, and anything below that is considered a failure. An A grade means the numerical score is between 90 and 100. If it's below 90 but still above 80, then the grade becomes a B. And B does NOT stand for "brilliant". It stands for B, and nothing ELSE.
