I have been confronted with a word so many times for which I couldn't find any equivalent in English. What is an opposite term for academic progress? I mean specifically when one is no longer doing well at school or university, like one did before. What do we call this? I do not mean dropping out of school or academic failure.
Imagine you're describing one's academic standing. So, can we say he has had "academic stagnation"? The results I found for stagnation showed it's not often used in this context.
I also searched for "academic probation", which seemed a good option. Is it a good option for the opposite of "academic progress"?
"Academic failure" does not suit my situation.
I want words that suit a formal situation.
