This also affects the rankings, or lack thereof. Which is awesome, because students are less prone to compete.
I am not the competitive type. I like this all very, very much.
Top 10% get "high honors"
Next 30% get "honors"
and next 60% get "pass"*
*Some students can get something like restricted credit or substandard pass but this is very rare (I imagine you have to really blow nuts to get this).
Also, I think I remember being told that rankings are only given to those applying for clerkships and that students must swear not to tell anyone their ranking.
