I found this written at the back of my mom's college mark sheet-

Any candidate for Part 1 or Part 2 or Part 3 Examination who has obtained pass marks in the aggregate but has failed in not more than two subjects, obtaining not less than 30% marks in each of these subjects, may be declared to have passed the examination if for every mark by which he/she is short of the minimum pass marks in these subjects he/she has secured three additional marks in the aggregate above the pass marks.

That's some criterion! There were two more such idiotic paragraphs but i would have gone mad typing them out!

Some people take pride in writing such English. I hope, the person who drafted this understood what he/she was trying to convey.
