HomeRe-sit examinations and Progression requirements



The pass mark is 40%. Students will be required to pass all modules to graduate. A student who has obtained a Grade of D or lower for a component of assessment will have to re-sit that component. In modules where there are more than one assessment component, if a student obtains an E Grade (<25%) for one component of assessment, they are required to retake the entire module in order to graduate from the programme. In exceptional circumstances, a student may be allowed to graduate with one condoned fail module.

In the final calculation for degree classification, all re-sits due to fails at first attempt or missed first attempt due to invalid reason (as deemed by the board of study) will not be given (in calculation) more than 40 marks or a C grade.
