- For the information and guidance of the field, the following guidelines are issued concerning Grade VI pupils expecting to graduate this school year 1994-1995 who failed to take the 1994 NEAT and concerning Fourth Year High School students expecting to graduate this school year 1994-1995 who failed to take the 1994 NSAT.
- A final failing grade of sixty percent (60%) in NEAT shall be given to all Grade VI pupils who failed to take the 1994 Regular or Special National Elementary Assessment Test or NEAT. Such grade in NEAT shall be given a weight of one-ninth in computing the pupil’s general average, in accordance with the provisions of DECS Orders Nos. 14 and 37, s. 1994.
- In the case of Fourth year high School students who failed to take the 1994 Regular or Special national Secondary Assessment Test (NSAT) a final failing grade of sixty percent (60%) in NSAT shall be given in each subject area tested which shall constitute one-fifth (1/5) of the final rating in that subject area.
- Notwithstanding the final failing grades in NEAT or NSAT, it should still be possible for the pupil/student, to obtain a passing general average, if the grades in the other subjects are satisfactory.
- In the case of pupils and students who may be candidates for honors, they should have obtained at least seventy-five percent (75%) in NEAT and the same rating in each subject area in NSAT. In both cases, it is not necessary that the pupil/student must have obtained an honors rating in NEAT/NSAT.
- These policies are effective for the current school year 1994-1995, and are subject to modification in subsequent years.
- Immediate dissemination of this Order is desired.
