Time trial mode gives ranks to runs. I made a pretty bad run and got... a B, which isn't that bad of a mark? I was expecting a big bold F or something.

Is B the worst rank VVVVVV will give?

Yes, B is the worst rank. The possible ranks are

B (lowest)
V (highest)

From a VVVVVV wiki:

In the Time Trials play mode [...] The objectives are finishing the level in less than the par time, collecting all the trinkets, and avoiding deaths. [...] If none of these objectives are met during a time trials run, the player is awarded a "B" rank. If some of the objectives is met the player receives a higher rank: "A" rank for one objective met, "S" rank for two objectives met, and "V" rank for all three.

(emphasis mine)

I've heard of grade inflation, but this is just silly. – Paul Marshall Jan 14 '14 at 0:09
