Catalan term or phrase: Insuficient
This word is found in the "grade awarded" section on a transcript. The language is Catalan. I am wondering if it means Fail or just a basic pass.......

poor, unsatisfactory, hence a fail
Explanation:
I think we'd have to assume that it would be in line with the Spanish, which is as I have written above, so it's bound to be a fail, but you could just say unsatisfactory to be faithful to the original.
