I strongly recommend it for all the PHPs.

@ Medha Joshi

Thank a lot Medha. It is nice to read your comments.

Kindly note that we not only use the variable pass mark in formative exams but we also use it for summative exams. However, we do not adjust Angoff scores in the summative exam MCQs as they are high stake exams and criteria set by group of faculty is "final".

We also use criterion referenced method for structured integrated short answer questions (SISAQs). Please read my post on this.

They together give variable pass mark for theory papers at PAHS-SOM.

We use similar system for practical exams too.
Well done, Shital.  Good to know that you are able to move away from 50% cut off pass percentage and are able to set standards atleast for formative assessments. Best wishes.
