Can you help me with English please?
Scrawled beside the grade was the comment "Not badly written, but ill-conceived."
What does "scrawled" and "beside" mean in this case?

'Scrawl' means to write something quickly and clumsily, or handwriting that's hard to read (like my handwriting).
When a student hands in a paper to his teacher, the teacher reads it and writes a grade on the top. Often there might be a brief comment written next to the grade (or 'beside' the grade), like 'Good!' or 'Keep up the good work!' or 'You could do better than this'.
