In middle school which is 6–8th grade, if you fail something you retake it. You can't graduate if you fail a subject. You may have to go to summer school but they can't leave you back for failing a regents exam if you pass the final and mid term for that class.
Likewise, people ask, can you retake Regents if you didn't fail?
You may retake a NYS Regents exam as many times as you like. The highest, not the latest grade, will be counted. Not every school will offer all the Regents exams all three times a year. You can call around and see where the test you want to take is offered when you want to take it.
Also to know, do colleges care about Regents?
The Regents are not used for college placement. Private colleges or public colleges or universities elsewhere don't know or care about them. Many middle schools offer the first two Regents at 8th grade; Algebra 1, and/or Living Enviroment (bio). Our science and math middle school didn't offer them.
How many points do you need to pass the Regents?
Students must achieve a score of 65 (55 for Special Education students) or higher on Regents Exams to pass.
Is it bad to fail a Regents?
Students who fail the Regent's exam may take it as many times as it takes to pass it, and there are prep classes for people having trouble passing it. Student failing Regent's Exams may earn a local diploma, which would serve as evidence of their having attended and completed high school.
