    How to become a pass leader?

    Like hoseyy said, check out the website and it should give you some insights. You can also express your thoughts to the lecturer in charge and ask for their opinion.

    how hard is it to achieve a 75 wam in these subjects?

    When I was studying 1A back then I had always thought it was hard. Later that I look at it when I studied 2A/3A, it seemed not that hard after all.
