The action and effect of approving it is known as approval . The term comes from Latin approbatĭo, while the verb approve refers to take something or someone for good or enough .

For example: “My mother gave me her approval for the wedding, so I am calmer”, "The approval of the project would take several weeks, as indicated by official sources", “I already have everything ready to start construction: it only remains to receive the approval of the plans by the municipality”.

One of the areas where the term approval is most significant is in the political and legislative. And it is that it is fundamental in the process in which certain laws that affect the lives of all citizens move forward or not.

In the case of Spain, an important set of guidelines is established in the Constitution of the year 1978 on how the aforementioned legislative approval should be carried out. Thus, for example, it is ruled that for any organic law to be accepted, modified or repealed, it is essential that an absolute majority of the Congress of Deputies be obtained.

On the contrary, as a general rule, everything that is the ordinary type of law may be approved if it simply obtains the support of the simple majority of the mentioned organism of the country.

Throughout history, it must be stressed that there have been various norms and laws that, when they have obtained approval, of the political leaders of that time, have become true milestones. This would be the case of divorce law, abortion law, abolishing slavery or allowing same-sex marriage.

The approval also consists of assent to one doctrine or coincide with a opinion or proposal: "The public gave their approval to the speech of the candidate with a loud applause", “I tried to get a change in the conditions of his plan, but my boss didn't give me his approval”.

Get a passing grade in a exam or evaluation It also receives the approval name: “I'm about to receive me, they just have to confirm the passing of an exam”, “I already presented the final work, but the professor told me that he cannot give me approval”.

To get that pass, any student must obtain a minimum of 5, a grade of Sufficient in the test, otherwise it will have been suspended. As of 5, as a rule, the denominations are Good for a 6, Notable for 7, Notable High for an 8, Outstanding for a 9, and Honors for a 10.

The opposite of approval is the disapproval , which consists in failing or not agreeing to something. A person that gives its approval to a project, is giving its approval or compliance. On the other hand, if the subject disapproves of the aforementioned project, what he does is oppose or, at least, not give his support: “Raúl gave me his approval so tomorrow we travel to complete the business” and "Raul did not give me his approval, so we have to suspend the trip" They are statements that demonstrate how you can change a situation according to your approval or disapproval.
