    In some pages it says the highest Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level is 12 but I got
    12.6. What is the reason?

    It's strictly math, so you could work up most any score you desire, see
    below for explanation.

    Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level test
    This test rates text on a U.S. school grade level. For example, a score
    of 8.0 means that an eighth grader can understand the document. For most
    documents, aim for a score of approximately 7.0 to 8.0.

    The formula for the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level score is:


    (.39 x ASL) + (11.8 x ASW) – 15.59
    where:

    ASL = average sentence length (the number of words divided by the number
    of sentences)

    ASW = average number of syllables per word (the number of syllables
    divided by the number of words)
