In Chile , some undergraduate majors such as engineering and geology are designed as 6 year programs.     However, in practice it is not uncommon for students to complete such programs over the course of 10 years, while studying full-time without leaves of absence.  This is in part due to a strict grading system where the highest grade of a typical class can be as low as 60% (C-) and the high frequency of protests and strikes organized by student federations and teacher unions, such as the 2011–13 Chilean student protests .
