Using the image above as an example – A student who has passed with distinction will typically fall under both, ‘Passed’ and ‘Passed with Distinction’ ranking level. However, by placing the ‘Passed with Distinction’ ranking level above the ‘Passed’ ranking level, when generating the Ranking Level Report, the system will first check for students who have passed with distinction. Once a student is categorized under the ‘Passed with Distinction’ ranking level, the student will not be categorized under the ‘Passed’ ranking level as well.

  1. To edit a ranking level, click Edit.

  2. To delete a ranking level, click Delete.
