No. You have to get a min of a pass in every module.

I’m unsure, as it depends on the course your doing and what units your taking while I’ve been made aware by my teacher despite my near pass I could still get a pass overall but as I said check your subject/units and also your teacher if it’s still feasible. While I’ve been told it became a thing due to how many people fail their exams

Sorry, have looked it up for you and they have changed the rules, so the near pass is a thing. It is below a pass, but it will not prevent you getting a certificate. Before you used to have to pass everything.

You can still pass the qualiication and get the extended diploma with a near pass if you have a merit/distinction in another unit to make up for it.
