Look at these examples:

Et toi? - Non, je ne l'ai pas eu.And you? No, I didn't pass [it].

Mon frère a eu son bac.My brother passed his A-levels.

-> N.B.  the bac or Baccalauréat is the compulsory exam that French students take at the end of high school, when they're 18, before going on to university for example. This exam, unlike the British A-Levels, includes all the subjects studied up to then. 

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.
