  22. GENERAL ACHIEVEMENT • Candidates pass the Matura if they get a positive grade in all Matura exams. • Candidates pass the matura with outstanding achievement, SUMMA CUM LAUDE, if they reach at least 30 points. They are called GOLDEN MATURA CANDIDATES.

  24. Last year (2011) 364 students were Golden Matura Candidates and 17 of them reached all possible (i. e. 34) points. This year (2012) in Spring Session 378 students were Golden Matura Candidates and 31 of them reached 34 points.

  28. RESITTING OF EXAMS AND IMPROVING GRADES • Candidates who pass the Matura but wish to improve their grade in one or more subjects are entitled to a single resitting of the exam up to two years after their first sitting of the Matura. • They can change their level of achievement. • The better of the two grades is awarded.

  29. RESITTING OF EXAMS AND IMPROVING GRADES • Candidates with at least three positive grades are entitled to resit only negative exams up to two years after their first sitting of the Matura. • They can change their level of achievement.

  30.
