A 7.0 or more is required for the elective subjects. In the case of Additional Mathematics, the student will be required to have an average of 8.0 or more in Mathematics.

**Special circumstances**

Promotion in very special circumstances takes place in the following fashion:

- The student gets to do a re-sit.
- The student gets to do an extra assignment.
- The student gets a promotion contract.

In this case the student must live up to the terms in the contract, which needs to be signed by all parties involved (student/parent/teacher/department head). The contract is evaluated by the end of the first period.
