All practical examinations must be successfully passed at a minimum level of 80%, including passing all critical evaluation items designated by the course or unit coordinator. Only one retake will be allowed on each practical examination.
Passing criteria for retakes will be identical to the original examination. For the purpose of calculating the final course grade, the student's retake score will be adjusted so that the maximum points awarded will be 80%. Any deductions for errors made during the retake will be deducted from the maximum score of 80%. (For example, a student who scores 70% on the first attempt must retake the practical examination. If he/she performs at a 90% level on the retake, the final grade will be 70%).
If the practical examination is not successfully passed on the retake, the student will automatically fail the course and will be evaluated by the Academic and Professional Standards Committee.
