I have Sub report that can not pass shared variable to main report.
I am checking just three courses English,French,Math and in sub report data looks ok shared variables have proper values but they are not shown in shared variable in main report.
Sub report is above section where main report has to show shared variable value.
Not sure what is wrong.

In the subreport formulas that set the variables, you always set them to "" at the beginning.  For example, in PassSem1EngGrade, you have EngS1G:="" before the If.  So, when the subreport reads an ENG record, it puts the grade in EngS1G, but then when it reads the next record, the formula sets EngS1G back to "", erasing the grade from the previous record.  Remove the line before the If that sets the variable to "".  Using PassSem1EngGrade as an example:

WhilePrintingRecords;
Shared StringVar EngS1G;
EngS1G:="";    //  Remove this line

If InStr({StsGrdsGrds_1.StsGrdsGrds_1_ClassID}, "ENG") > 0 Then

EngS1G:= {StsGrdsGrds_1.StsGrdsGrds_1_Grade};

EngS1G;
