In the advanced classes I've done at FS (which is all of them), it hasn't been so strict. They're usually not looking for an exact score (like DG) but watching form, safety, focus, foundational stuff etc. They'll give you a little slack on speed (and thus some parts of the score) if your fundamentals are there.
