Repite el vocabulario para un grado bien. ¡Repites y Practicas hacer perfeccion!

Hello everybody. I think that these two sentences might have questionable grammar. Can you look over them and find out things that don't make sense?

They are supposed to read: -Repeat the vocabulary for a good grade. -Repeat and practice to perfection!

Their Spanish counterparts: Repite el vocabulario para un grado bien. ¡Repites y Practicas hacer perfeccion!

Thank you.

Repites and Practicas are incorrect for a command.

Repite and practica para que consigues la perfeccíon.

Repite and practica hasta perfecto.

I would think for the exhortation that you would use the infinitive form of the verb or in this case since there are nouns for this context:

¡Repetition and Practice achieves Perfection!

¡La Repetición y La Práctica logran la Perfección!


also I don't believe grado means grade in this context. Notas means "scores".

buenas notas=good grades


...para ??? un grado bien

...para ganar un grado bien (in order to win...)

if not then,

por un grado bien. (in exchange for...)
