If a student gets passing grades in 10th grade global for all 4 quarters but fails the Regents, how is it determined whether the student is considered to have passed the class for credit? I’d the failing Regents exam calculated into that determination so that the student might fail the class and the Regents? Or does the student get credit for the class but not for the Regents? For some students this could make the difference between graduating and not graduating since for basic Regents a student only needs to pass 1 social studies regents.

A. Yes, the Regents exam score is included in the calculation of students’ final course grades in Global History & Geography-10.  Students can re-take the exam in August and the new score will be used to re-calculate their course grade.  There are two Social Studies Regents exams.  Students will also take the U.S. History & Government Regents exam in grade 11.
