Interpretation of the BEd Pass/Fail Assessment

UBC’s Bachelor of Education program utilizes a pass/fail grading system for its mandatory education courses. Therefore, once you are in Years 4 and 5 of your professional component courses, you will be graded based upon a high standard of performance which constitutes a pass grade. Our standard for a Pass within the BEd program is equivalent to at least a B+ (76%) in UBC’s standard marking system.

When you graduate, you may require a letter from UBC explaining how your courses were graded. Visit the Teacher Education Office website for the official letter of explanation , written by the Associate Dean of Teacher Education, of the Pass/Fail system used for the courses in your BEd program.
