Whenever my Sims attend university, despite having the necessary skills maxed out, homework always turned in, presentations and term papers are outstanding quality, and studying for hours on end, my sims fail their classes with F grades and are put on probation. I have already tried removing mods and it did not work.  

I am extremely annoyed with this, as prior to the patch, my Sims were doing wonderfully in their coursework.  Now they are failing despite doing every single thing that is necessary.  I'm really upset that I can't play with this feature.

@Lapin_Demoness Does this happen for all classes or only the ones with term papers ?

I'm also having the issue. I've even had the sim study for hours and complete all the assignments and presentations very early, but she ended up suspended because she kept failing for no reason.

@EJ_Flambert How are your skills ? Which level are the necessary ones ?

Did you turn in the paper/presentation early ? This seems to lock the grade at an early state and I'm unsure if that has a negative impact.

My Sim has Level 10 cooking, gourmet cooking, and baking. They are going to school for Culinary Arts. They have failed or gotten very low grades in 5 classes now, and is suspended. Classes of all 3 variety: term paper (turned in edited to outstanding quality), presentation (also edited to outstanding), and final exam (studied for ad naseum). They only took 2-3 classes at a time, has no job, and literally does nothing but cooking-related things other than what they need to survive. Still suspended. Before the patch I got an A+ in every class for this Sim and previous Sims.

Sim Cannot Graduate (always fails last 2 classes, skill maxed issue?)

What is your current game version number? idk
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? University is the trouble
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I got my Sim maxed out in the Painting skill, but she has 2 Painting classes left in University. But no matter how much I stay on top of homework (with the cheat Make Happy) and study and do everything extra for each course and get to class and does the exam/final presentation, she ends up FAILING at the end........... even though she's literally a pro painter already and does all the work on time. She'll just keep failing and thus never be able to GRADUATE (these are the last 2 classes she needs, I reiterate.)

Re: Sim Cannot Graduate (always fails last 2 classes, skill maxed issue?)

@crinrict  I'm noticing that several of the bug reports mention Sims failing in subjects where their skill levels are already maxed out. Could it be that some kind of hidden game mechanism is looking for skill level progress when calculating final grades?

 

Sorry if I am completely off base here.

 

I remember having a similar problem in Sims 3 University Life. Part of your final grade depended on increasing relevant skill levels, which you cannot do when you are already at skill level 10.
