|French term or phrase: jury de scolarité|
|Le passage en année supérieure est décidé par le jury de scolarité.|
Very few sites on this. Must be a new term. Any idea whether there's an equivalent board or jury in English-speaking countries that decides whether students are promoted to the next year?
Once again, standing procedure in France where the results of students are discussed in committee. This is not an examinations board as such for the members of the 'panel' are made up of teachers from each subject/discipline area and it's a make or break situation for borderline students. (as a teacher I was regularly invited to sit on the committee although presence is not obligatory. However, it can make a difference to some students if you go as you can speak up for them.)
The closest we seem to have is the Assessment Committee or Board where the students' results are debated by a committee made up of faculty members. See the following links for more details
Membership of Faculty Assessment Committees
the Dean or nominee as Chair
Sub Dean/ Associate Dean
the Heads, or their nominees with delegated authority, of all Academic Units offering subjects for courses for which the Faculty has responsibility
academic staff from Academic Units external to the Faculty, as determined by the Chair
other academic staff, as agreed by the Chair

you might prefer Faculty assessment board to get across the idea of inclusion of individual members of staff being present
The Faculty Assessment Board is also responsible for dealing with individual student cases, monitoring of results and the provision of advice on student achievement, in respect of all courses that are the responsibility of the Faculty, with the exception of research higher degrees
The Faculty Assessment Board approves the grades and they are then listed on the student's academic record.

|Thanks. In the end I went for "School Assessment Board" to distinguish it from "jury de diplôme" later in the text|

borad of examiners
The University operates a system whereby degree examination results are approved by Boards of Examiners. A Board is made up of representatives of all the Departments teaching on a course and has the responsibility for approving exam results and for taking decisions about the progress of students. Boards generally meet twice a year, once in late June to review students’ performance in the January and May/June diets of examinations, and again in September to review the August diet. Students’ identities are not disclosed during the marking process for all examinations and in some cases double-marking by internal examiners takes place. Examination question papers and scripts are subject to scrutiny by External Examiners.
