In this case you will need to clarify what you mean. If marks are negative, you would say, on his exam he has 8 marks against him. You can say, he has consistently gotten good marks (or grades) on his tests.

I believe "Put a mark on an exam" would make sense in British English.

In American English: 'Grade a test.' or, less common, 'Give/Assign a grade for/to a test.'
"I'd give it (the test) an 8, or a score of 8."

A score of 8 wouldn't make sense in America. We assign a score of 100, or a letter grade of 'A,' when someone gets every response right, and subtract points from that perfect score for each incorrect answer given (or a percentage is calculated). The score/percentage roughly corresponds to a letter grade. One college posts their grading criteria as documented in the table below.

 Percent  Letter Grade 
 94-100  A 
 90-93  A- 
 87-89  B+ 
 83-86  B 
 80-82  B- 
 77-79  C+ 
 73-76  C 
 70-72  C- 
 67-69  D+ 
 63-66  D 
 60-62  D- 
 <60  F

In America, a teacher "grades (the) students" or "gives students a grade," based on how well they did on a test (oral or written). We don't use the word "mark."

I'm not sure what they would say in the UK, but "gives students a mark" sounds reasonable.

In US teachers mark (or grade) tests or papers. A student who receives good marks is doing well.
