He received a diploma with commendation in Computer Science from XX School.
Does "with commendation in" just a fancy word to say "diploma for Computer Science", or is there any special meaning to this? The dictionary meaning for "commendation" is compliment/award, and It seems awkward to interpret "commendation" as an award. A diploma with award in Computer Science? I don't think so... What does "with commendation in" mean?
