    Students are graded as follows:

    • LOW PASS
    • PASS
    • HIGH PASS
    • PASS WITH HONOURS
    • REPEAT

    To receive a PASS in any course students must in addition to course content, receive a PASS in Professional Behaviour; this requires that the student demonstrates an ability to take direction, an ability to meet deadlines, good manners, effort and focus, and a professional level of attendance and punctuality. Without a PASS in Professional Behaviour, the final grade will not be higher than a LOW PASS.
