But the question arises here is, does the school got any such provisions for the failed students to take a retest. Because in my Country, particularly in the Province from which i come from, once a student fails in an exam in one subject then he/she is allowed to take a retest known as Compartment of that particular subject but if the student fails in multiple subjects then his/her whole year is wasted.

This is a very difficult question to respond to. In my culture - North American - it would be considered unethical for me to ask a relative to intervene on my friends behalf. Why? because it would give him unfair advantage that others taking the same classes would not have. So, for me, I would most likely need to set boundaries with him and tell him that I cannot interfere with the principal's process. The risk, though, is that he may be very angry with me and may end our friendship. Even if I told him that he is very important to me, and that the reason I cannot assist him, is because I cannot corrupt the integrity of my relative by tempting him to intervene in a case that is not ethically one he can interfere with.

It is not easy, but I wish you all the best in however you decide to approach this moral dilemma.
