(ii) A pass in any individual paper, course or the examinations as a whole shall be a grade or grade average of not less than C-. 

(iii) Normally, in arriving at the final grade for any course, a grade for course work will be combined with the examination grade. Course work shall normally be weighted 40 percent and the written examination 60 percent. In certain subjects, course work may be weighted as high as 60 percent. In such instances, the Board of Studies concerned must seek and obtain the approval of the JBTE and will be required to specify the exact nature of the course work and how it will be assessed. 

(iv) Normally, students will be required to pass the written examination in order to pass the subject or course. However, where the candidate's mark in the written examination is D, course work may be taken into consideration if the course work is C+ or better. 

(v) Where students have failed a course, having failed both course work and examination, they will be required to repeat both the course work and the examination. 

(vi) Where students have failed a course, having failed either the course work or the examination, they shall be required to repeat only the component that has been failed and will be credited with the component that has been passed. 

(vii) Students must complete course work requirements before the commencement of the examination in each semester or year, otherwise students should not be allowed to sit the examination.
