How Are Jujutsu Kaisen Sorcerers Ranked?

In Jujutsu Kaisen, all living things have cursed energy. The difference is that jujutsu sorcerers can control the flow of cursed energy in their bodies and even reduce its release.

If a certain sorcerer reaches a high rank, he or she can refine the said energy and perform cursed techniques.

Jujutsu sorcerers have grades or ranks. It is a power scaling system that categorizes the strength of each sorcerer.

Even cursed spirits, cursed tools, and cursed objects have their own grade.

In general, the grades range from 4 to 1. Powerful sorcerers get higher grades like Special Grade 1 and Special Grade.

In the case of Jujutsu High students, the school assigns their grades based on their skills.

Students usually start at Grade 4 once they join the school, but their rank can change based on their experience.

The only known Grade 4 in the series is Maki Zenin. It is not because she lacks skills, but because her family is holding back her promotion.

This rank is for inexperienced and weak sorcerers. 

Grade 3

Since we mentioned that ranks are based on experience, those who enroll in Jujutsu High and immediately achieve this grade are considered geniuses.

The Grade 2 jujutsu sorcerers are Panda, Megumi Fushiguro, Momo Nishimiya, and Takuma Ino.

Lastly, sorcerers that have “anomalies” or those who have immense strength that have destructive potential are categorized as Special Grade.

They are considered unique cases, hence why they are called "special".
