Students whose absence period exceeds 10 days without excuse and 30 days in total will be deemed unsuccessful regardless of their course scores and their parents will be notified in writing.
The total absence period for those who lost their first degree relative will be 40 days, provided that it does not exceed 10 days, which is the unexcused absence period.
