In that context the red phrase needs to continueelyssia said:A note from the dean put me on academic probation:
The sentence means that " the dean informs me that I have been allowed to go free under the supervision . what is the meaning of the red part ?
Please explain !
I think you have missed "probation", which means "the processing of testing, for a usu. fixed length of time, the suitability of a person's character, abilities, etc. (e.g. for a job or for membership of a society)(Longman). Its Chinese explanation: 试用期，见习期.elyssia said:aragorn
"be allowed to continue with whatever the student was able to do before whatever unstated problem occurred"(selected from aragorn's post )
" A note from the dean put me on academic probation:"
are the two sentence the same meaning ?
Or can I explain the second sentence in this way :
The dean criticized me for my failing marks "?
