Hello~ Whould you help me how to say this naturally?
A: How was the exam? Did you pass it?
B: No, because lack of 2 marks, I couldn't make it.
Or, No, becasue small of 2 marks, I couldn't make it.
( need to have 60 marks to pass but 'B' got 58 marks, so there is 2marks gab)
A: Oh, What a shame!(or Shame on you! or What a unfortun!).
I know how hard you tried. Don't be turn off, you will pass next semester.
Help me please~

Sorry but,,, what does ' Don't be put off' mean? I can't get it... (I tried to find on the web but still can't get the meaning...)
see here: put off definition | Dictionary.com
In this context, it is definition 34:b
