  • who has a higher weighted average grade over all study results throughout the period of study; 
  • who has cumulatively completed the curriculum to a greater extent;
  • who has had fewer negative results throughout the entire period of study;
  • who has attained outstanding results in their field, successfully participated in professional competitions or contests or who is socially active.
