Hello, can someone tell me what this means?

’’Another route to progression is to pass at least 90 credits (mark 40 or above) and compensate the remaining maximum 30 credits (mark between 30-39).‘’

Compensation is a process where if you failed one or two small modules, and have not failed them very badly, but have done well in your other modules, they'll effectively turn a blind eye to the failed modules and allow you to progress to the next year anyway.

There are 120 credits each year, split amongst different modules, Based upon what you've written, your university would allow you to progress to the next year as long as you have achieved a mark of 40 or above in 90 of those 120 credits, and have achieved a mark of between 30 and 39 in the remaining 30 credits.
