The Challenge

Here’s the scenario: 

We have some college applicants applying to get into our Arts, Business, or STEM program. How we treat their application will be based on last term’s performance and their exam average. 

Can you get the "Application Status" column to automatically update based on the rules in the following chart?

 


The AND and OR functions are pretty useful for combination and decision-type formulas, and as usual, IF and IFS are go-to functions for controlling behavior.

Watch out! This could be tricky! Tell us how you would solve this. then tune in next week for my solution.
