The eligibility requirements are: 90% attendance of classes, 60% achievement in the Cumulative Achievement Tests (CATs) and 60% achievement in the Learning Portfolio (LP).
Students who fail to achieve either 60% in the CATs or 60% in the LP are required to repeat the level and will not be eligible to sit the End of Course Assessment (ECA). Students who fulfill the eligibility requirements may sit the ECA. Students who do not meet the eligibility requirements will have to repeat the 8 week course.
The final course grade (out of 100) is made up of the ECA (80%) and CATs (20%). Students are required to get an overall course grade of 60 out of 100 or above to pass the level. This means that students who get below 60 points out of 100 will be required to repeat the 8-week course.
