Inconsistent grading

RE: Inconsistent grading
I am sure Patrick will confirm this, but I think the grade on the TTFB is graded based on the percentage of time it takes to load the entire site. For instance, if your site takes 1.2 seconds to load but your TTFB is the first second, your probably going to get a bad TTFB grade. If your site takes 15 seconds to load, then that same 1 second TTFB doesn't look as bad and you'll get a better grade.

I also think that it is weighted on page size as well - if your returning a tiny page, then a higher TTFB is bad, but if your sending 500kb of data, then the TTFB may be graded accordingly.

But those are just my guesses really.
