sueaberwoman: 6:05pm Sep 3, 2008: Well, Jana, jlsjr! Seems like a tough one; I have read the explanation, but don't see why there would just be the 1 figure! Is it the final average? Can someone clarify further? I will add some references in English blw (not for" double compensatn" tho).
Reference information: I agree with jlsjr. This will require more explanation than translation. Essentially, it means that if the student receives any grade below 3.5, they will have to compensate for it with higher grades.
(The example given in the reference site is that if the bilan is set at 4 and the student receives a 3, they will need to have either two 5s or one 6 to make up for it- double compensation.)
Le principe de la double compensation impose qu'une note inférieure à la moyenne soit compensée par le double de points supérieurs à cette moyenne. Un 3 doit être compensé par deux 5 ou un 6, si la moyenne est de 4.
