d) A person who fails to obtain 35% of the final exam mark will not be considered successful.
Courses of a practical nature or research seminars and applied projects:
The colleges’ councils indicate how the grades placed for these decisions will be distributed, provided that this distribution is approved by the relevant college council.
B – At the beginning of each academic year, the College Board issues a decision indicating the distribution of grades for both the theoretical and practical sections (tests, activities and practical).
C- The final evaluation of the student in a course is determined by collecting all the marks of the exams, examinations, assignments and scientific activities in addition to the practical mark (if any), and the sum of these marks constitutes the final total mark of the student in the course.
D- The student may submit a request to review the final examination paper mark or the semester exams within a maximum period of three days from

– The semester average is calculated for each student at the end of each semester, and it is the sum of the points obtained in the courses he studied during the semester after multiplying each of them by the number of credit hours for the course divided by the total credit hours that the student studied during the semester.
– Each student is calculated a total GPA at the end of the semester using the same semester GPA method, taking into account all the courses that the student has studied since the beginning of his studies, except for the courses that have been repeated, where the higher mark is taken into account.
