§ 346. Interpretation of Part of Section 6(c) of the Act.
The board makes the following interpretation of that part of Section 6(c) of the Act which states that:
“Any applicant failing to make the required grade shall be given credit for the branches passed, and may, without further costs, take the examination at the next regular examination on the subjects in which he failed.”
Candidates are considered to have failed a subject if they receive a grade in that subject of less than seventy-five percent (75%).
If first-time applicants, or retake applicants considered as first-time applicants by this section, having taken the examination and failed to receive the grade as required in Section 6(c),
(a) do not take the examination in the failed branches as required by the board, at the next regular examination, or
(b) fail to obtain grades sufficient to bring the general average to at least seventy-five percent (75%), or receives less than sixty percent (60%) in more than two subjects in which examined (grades in the subjects credited the previous examination are to be included in determining such general average), or
(c) fail to receive a 75 percent (75%), or better, on each part of the practical examination, then the credit allowed in the branches passed in the first examination shall lapse.
If, thereafter, candidates desire to reapply, they shall renew their application together with an additional application license fee, and shall be examined in the same manner and to the same extent as though they had not previously taken any examination.
