The Cambridge High School System differs from the South African High School system in that students are not required to pass all their subjects in one sitting in order to pass a Grade. Any subject passed is logged at Cambridge as a credit and students are free then to concentrate on other subjects. Should they wish to improve on their pass mark, the subject may be written again.
