On the decision to award the student medals (like gold and silver) only affect grades earned in 10th and 11th grades. That is the annual "three" in biology, which student received in the sixth grade, will have no value. However, in the 10th and 11th forms of "threes" should not be, including in the half. All estimates are valid in addition to the "fours" should be "excellent".
Some time ago on the silver medal could have been students with any number of "fours", obtained in the 10th class in the first half. But after the entry into force of the order of the Ministry of education and science of the Russian Federation No. 140 of February 25, 2010 valid number "fours" in the half-year decreased to two. This order came into force on 25 April 2010.
In General, for the silver medal student must have scored no more than two "fours" for each semester of the 10th and 11th grades, and no more than two "fours" among the annual estimates. In addition, no more than two "quadruples", obtained on the exam.
As for final grades, among them "fours" should be no more than two. That is, if the assets of the student annual of the Quartet of chemistry and physics for 11th class and on the exam he's only received one "b", but in history, the number of final grades of "good" in his passport may be increased to three, and this is unacceptable. If all the above conditions are met, after school, the student will receive a silver medal "For special successes in the doctrine" and finished with silver embossing.
Advice 2: How to get a silver medal in school
Silver medal – the insignia of the student, an indicator of its success in the final of the first stage of life. It is less prestigious than gold, but it also requires several times less effort.
Let me know who some of the teachers that want to get the silver medal. It is much more important than it might seem, because this "application" you will form to himself some relevance. Teachers will know that you have a goal and you are trying to achieve, so be careful (and perhaps supportive) to treat you in the classroom.
Expect their forces. Silver medal is good because it allows you to have any number of "fours" in the tenth grade, and two in the eleventh. This allows the student not to blindly cram all the items in a row, and to concentrate on something, to pull and to complete their education. For example, if you know that you will not extend the geometry of the "five", but will easily take "four", it is quite possible a few "let go" of this subject and to learn English that you can really improve.
Show visible effort. It so happens that a talented but lazy student put a rating lower than not sparkling, but diligent schoolgirl. This is because teachers are so important to your knowledge on the subject, much greater role is played by your desire to learn. So (especially in the second half of graduating class) you need to make the effort to do all tasks and to show the teachers that you are willing to work hard.
Be social active. In many ways, the pressure on teachers have principals, who have their own "plan" for the number of graduates-medallists in the school year. Cases are known when the medals were issued solely in order to raise the prestige of the school: "this year the school has released 5 gold medalists! This is an undeniable indicator of the quality of academic staff". So if you participate in the social life of the school (performances, KVN, competitions, lightning), the teachers can take you on a note. However, it does not allow you to forget about studying – just like the medal is still not allowed.
Is the advice useful?
Having said about its intention to become a medalist, no longer develop this theme, otherwise it can reduce the whole effect to zero as just bragging.
If subject to the student of all necessary conditions the silver medal was not awarded to him, we can achieve justice through the courts. The Statute of limitations is three years, that is, if you graduated from high school two years ago and realized that you were supposed to, but was not issued a silver medal, you can safely file a claim.
