I have a student who repeated a course and received a higher final mark. When I try to add the course in COLS and select “repeat” under Course Status, I get an error message. What am I doing wrong?
When an applicant repeated the same course and received a higher mark, the “Repeat” designation should be placed against the course with the lower passing final grade and the credit value set to “0000”.
Do not use the “Repeat” (code “R”) designation for failed attempts.
The course with the higher mark should have a credit value greater than 0000.
Refer to “Course Status” in How to Report Grades and Diploma Details.
