A student who obtains more than one F in a year is not entitled to write a supplemental examination and fails the year.
A first-year student who fails a course, and who is not entitled to write a supplemental examination, or who does not pass the supplmental examination, fails the year. A first-year student who fails the year must withdraw from the Faculty of Law, unless the Faculty determines otherwise.
An upper-year student who fails the year, but who has not previously failed in law school, may repeat the failed year. A student who fails any two years in law school must withdraw from the Faculty of Law.
The Faculty will review the grades in all courses taken by a failing student. This review will include re-reading of all the student's examination papers to verify the accuracy of the marking process.
In appropriate circumstances, the Faculty may pass a student who would otherwise fail.
