If you cannot meet the minimum performance level in the career level’s set time period, you will restart the career level, provided that you have achieved a positive level of performance. If losses have occurred during this period, you will be downgraded by a career level. In career level 5, the minimum performance has to be reached, otherwise you will be downgraded to level 4
