aprobado raspado


Senior Member
I have a doubt, how can I say in English 'aprobado raspado', 'por los pelos'? It is when you pass an exam with a very low mark and you are about to fail it.
Thank u very much,

    "I scraped by on my English exam."

    More commonly, you might hear it like this...:
    A: "How'd you do on the test?"
    B: "I barely scraped by. But now I'm just happy it's over, and I passed."

    You can also "scrape by" with regards to money, mental health, etc....
    "I'm scraping by" = "I'm barely managing."
    "I was able to scrape together enough money to afford ...x"
