Its a mess. The English is so poor. I have to report almost every second sentence. Someone should really review this course.

Thanks for all your reports, I hope that each time we do, it will improve the course.

The English translation sounds unnatural. "The students have passed an exam / examination" or "The students have passed the exam / examination" is much better.

Also, the abbreviation "exam" should be accepted for this and other questions that use "mtihani"; it feels more natural to most of us (although it is good typing practice hahaha)

Examination to me has a feeling of a medical examination rather than a test or exam for school. Just saying. Obviously no native speakers of a non African-English dialect for this course.
