Okay, I'm not sure what the question is. 

So let me rephrase it. 

Your stats are 7 and so you need 640 DI to make
Admiral. This is Double DI

Your stats are 6 and so you need 1280 DI to make
Admiral. This is Quad DI

Your stats are 5 and so you need 2560 DI to make
Admiral. This is 8x DI. 

Your stats are 4 and so you need 5120 DI to make
Admiral. This is 16x DI.

Isn't Double DI and Quad DI already in the netrek

Now, when he says 4 grades below. I assume his stats
are 4. And he wants to make Admiral with 5120 DI? 

Ummm. NO. Even in my school, there is a time limit
before they WON'T let you graduate. I think it's 7
