Hola Jannice,

We use "para" to express surprise about something. So here:

Sacó una nota excelente para lo que ha estudiado

He got an excellent grade given how much he studied.

we mean that we are surprised by the fact that he failed if we take into account how much he studied. We are surprised.

Here is a lesson about this specific use of para

Saludos
