I got my ba vs i received my ba

I got my ba vs i received my ba

In the lesson il,a eu so ba is translated as he got his ba but in the quiz as he received his ba. Are they the same. Received seems like an award ceremony but got more like passed?

Bonjour Jennifer ! Yes, here we mean the same thing, as often passing an exam is equivalent to receiving the corresponding degree in English. "In French, to say that you passed an exam (meaning succeeded in it), or that you received/got a degree, you can use the verb 'avoir' and the name of the exam or degree." I hope that's helpful! Bonne Année !
