In general I would say that is just plain wrong.
Firstly, one of the indicators employers look for is a consistent
approach to your work (and study is hard work) over time, so credits or
above all the way through your studies is valuable - 51% certainly isn't
"good enough"!

Secondly, if you get into the habit of just getting passes, how will you
change gear and start getting higher marks?

And finally, you may need a credit average or similar to qualify for
honours or similar in the event your studies take you down that track.

Good luck,
