At high school the grades range from A* to G, the only lower is U (unclassified) I think... It changes as college a bit (from A* to F). The pass mark is set at 40%. This also depends since one go to Sixth Form or choose from a range of vocational courses some of which will allow you to go to university. Some like fail, pass, merit and distinction. Depending on a number of modules one gets a grade like DMM or something like that.

Well when it gets to university it's somehow similar however each uni has a different reputation and so on, assesment is non universal like at college where you get a set of exam boards with certain standards. Usually a pass mark is set at 40% and this will get you a 3rd class degree. Then you have two types of second class dress (2:2 from 50% to 60% and 2:1 from 60% to 70%) and finally a 1st class degree from 70% onwards. Usually it is advised that students should aim towards 2:1 at least. I think a 3rd class degree is also divided into two separate categories but probably it's not that important if one scores so low after three years of studying (or not studying in this case)

Last time a closed question test was back in college. These were just set randomly by a tutor in one subject to keep people on track and refreshed. However the real exams were based on open questions which in reality meant writing a couple of essays in the frame of two hours and sometimes less.
It is sort of true that from a legal point of view anything above a U is a pass, but in reality only a C is considered a past.

E is a pass. But like everywhere, barely passing something won't do that much good to you anyway. Excepting that there is no need to retake a subject/exam.

Can you refuse to accept a vote at an exam, in other countries, and try the exam another time to get higher mark? In Italy you can.

Yeah it's a pass but you wouldn't hear anyone say they passed of they got a E and most people would retake it.

In the UK you can't refuse your mark as such, but you can retake the exam to get a higher mark.

In Romania, at least at my University, if you get a 6 for example, and want a higher mark, you can retake the exam, but the grade considered is the 2nd grade. So you can take a 10... and it will remain a 10... but you can also fail with a 4, and remain with the failed mark.
