Your School Grade (magen)

As this is an advanced class, we will be working at a higher level than is required for your Bagrut examination this year. Therefore, some of your grades may be lower than what you will get on your Bagrut. This will be taken into consideration when I calculate your school grade (magen) and you will be awarded extra points as compensation. How many points you receive depends on your attitude. Remember, the best way to lower your grade is not to hand in work. A zero has quite an impact on the grade point average of a good student. I can’t compensate you for work you didn’t do. You are assessed on performance, not potential.
