I've already seen "remedial class" (aula de recuperação).

This is another culture clash situation.
A remedial class in England tends to support students with longer term learning difficulties. The idea that in a short time you can quickly study, retake your exams and "pass" moving on to the next stage is a somewhat alien concept in current British educational philosophy (and methodology). Consequently it is fiddicult to find an exacto r even a good translation.
"Recuperação" is a convenient thing here in Brazil where the concept that students need to "pass the year" in order to progress to the next class or grade is still current. It keeps the number of "repetentes" in state schools down and the number of satisfied fee-paying parents in private schools up.

after that, for me, saying remedial classes works fine.

Possibly the term you want is "emery board". A "nail file" is made of metal, but an "emery board" is more like sandpaper and "lixa".


Per Wikipedia:
Emery boards are pieces of cardboard which have emery or emery paper glued to them, making them both abrasive and flexible, used for fingernail and toenail care. They are used by manicurists to shape and smooth the nail during manicure and pedicure sessions. Emery boards are inexpensive and disposable, making them a sanitary alternative to metal nail files. The emery board was first patented by J. Parker Pray of New York in 1883.[1]

After reading the explanation, it seems that "remedial classes" are like what we refer here as "aulas de reforço", since they are offered in parallel with the ordinary classes.

Hi there!

Para recuperação ou até mesmo uma substitutiva:

Take supplementary exams/tests

Q: What is a supplementary exam?

A: A supplementary exam is an additional sitting to the original exam for each technical module.

This allows candidates who fall into the eligible criteria a chance to complete the exam component without having to repeat the entire module.

Q: How do I qualify to sit the exam?

A: In order to be eligible to sit the supplementary exam, you must have either:

- received a mark of 32 - 39 in your original exam; or
- attempted and failed the exam in your final technical module (no minimum mark required); or
- applied and been approved for special consideration.

If you are eligible to sit the supplementary exam you will be sent an email advising when and how to enrol
