Officially, it is not a requirement to retake the class if you passed, but failed a New York regents exam in New York. Likewise, the reverse is true; it is possible to pass a regents exam, but fail the class and have to repeat it.
In this regard, do you go to summer school if you fail the Regents?
You won't get held back and you don't necessarily have to go to summer school. You will have to retake the regents in August, so you should go to summer school or get a tutor so you can practice the material.
Likewise, how many points do you need to pass Algebra Regents?
If you're taking the Algebra 1 Regents exam to fulfill your math test requirement, then you need to ensure that you will pass the test. To pass, you must earn a scaled score of 65 or higher, which comes out to about 27 credits/points (out of 86).
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.
Are they getting rid of Regents?
In 2017, the Board of Regents voted to replace the Common Core learning standards with a new set of standards to be known as the “Next Generation Learning Standards.” The new standards will not be in full use in classrooms until 2020, and students will not be tested on them until 2021.
