What happens if you pass the Regents but fail the class?

By Eleftheria Kouremenou, On 19th March 2021, Under Education
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.
All three math regents (Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II) Living Environment and 1 physical science regents (Earth Science, Chemistry, or Physics) Global History and United States History and Government.
Students who are granted an appeal with a score between 60 and 64 on one examination and who fulfill all other course and testing requirements will be determined to have met all graduation requirements and, thereby, earn a Regents diploma.
Beginning next year, students will have to attain a minimum score of at least 55 on the State Regents test in English to graduate. Students will also gradually be required to score a passing grade of 65 percent or above in math and other subjects.
Regents exams measure student achievement in high school-level courses. In order to graduate from high school, students must pass five Regents exams in the following subject areas: English Language Arts, a math, a science, social studies, and any additional Regents exam or another option approved by the State.
***One Science Regents must be Living Environment, and one in a physical science (Chemistry, Physics or Earth Science). RCT exams are no longer available. Classified Special Education students may earn a local diploma by scoring a 55 to 64 on the required Regents exams.
All students may appeal scores on Regents examinations between 60 and 64. Students with disabilities may appeal scores of 52-54 in order to meet the local diploma requirements. Nothing in this provision prevents a student with a disability from appealing a score of 60-64 in order to earn a Regents diploma.
Students must score 65 or higher on the following nine exams to earn an advanced Regents diploma.
  • English Language Arts (ELA)
  • Three math exams (Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II/Trigonometry)
  • One social studies exam (Global History and Geography or U.S. History and Government)
Technically yes, but nearly all states have annual statewide exams in various subjects. New York just calls them the Regents exams. Other states give their own exams different labels. The NYS exams are in many cases considered good exams - they are accurate assessments of the subject they test on.
All Regents exams have some version of a curve or another, and while this curve did help the lower-performing students, it also HURT the highest-performing students. For example, a student that knew 94% of the exam received a grade of 93. A student that knew 86% of the exam received an 84.

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.
