They have made it singular,.

So it should be.

If you work hard you will get a good grade in the examination.

IF YOU WORK HARD, YOU SHALL GET GOOD GRADES IN AN EXAMINATION.

If and will must not be used together in a sentence.

Grade should be singular isnt it.

If he works hard, he is sure to get good grades. Therefore, "will" is used here.

...good 'grade / grades ' in the 'examination/examinations'.

Grade must be singular. And it must be 'a good grade'.

@Sameer : If and will should not be used together but you can use it with comma.

If you fall, you will get hurt.

So I feel the usage of If+will clause is correct over here.

Please give the valid reason, everyone is giving in their own way, which one is correct?

An examination can be plural. But grade should be singular. Isn't it?

Vishwesh said: (May 28, 2017)  
We can also talk about many exams together.

Masroor said: (Aug 16, 2018)  
Can anyone tell that what's the proper reason to be used article 'the' before examination?

*The* is used with a particular point in time or things which are specific.
