    ''Your exam point is low beyond pass the course.''

    I want to say ''your exam point is too low to pass the course'' by using ''beyond''. If it is not correct, would you mind making a sentence by using ''beyond'' which has the same meaning with this sentence.

    Re: beyond

    I wouldn't use "beyond". 'Beyond" normally carries the sense of bigger, larger, etc.

    Your rephrasing is much closer. "Your exam mark is too low to pass the course."
