Resolved questions
concerning some application of んです, please help

What happened? どうしたんですか
My grade is bad. せいせきわわるいんです.

I feel it's incorrect to add んです directly after わるい but I don't know the correct answer.
Please help.

    I think that it is not a wrong sentence to add んです directly after わるい but it should be that せいせきがわるいんです。

    I think this sentence which is added んです shows the person's feeling or reason.

    For example せいせきがわるいんです。(That's why I feel down) , おなかがいたいんです。(That's why I look pale) .

    If you say only せいせきがわるいです。おなかがいたいです。, they are just only answers of question.
    But if you use  んです  in your sentence, it shows your feeling that you want a questioner to understand your feeling or reason.

    So that your sentence せいせきがわるいんです is correct.
