What happens if I do poorly in a Concentration?
We encourage you to explore both incorrect and correct answers in regular lessons. However, the final SMARTCASE lessons within each course are graded, and students are required to score 80% or better to pass the course. You can retake SMARTCASES if you achieve less than 80%, and you can also retake SMARTCASES to score above the minimum 80%. Only your best SMARTCASE score will be counted towards your final grade.
As far as the exams that follow each concentration, we do not allow you to re-take these exams. But, you will have a chance to improve your final score each time you take a concentration exam, by scoring well on your SMARTCASEs and completing all of your projects and proctored oral examinations.
