Students must attain a minimum of a pass grade in order to progress to the next year of a programme. In a case where a student fails a year an opportunity will be provided to re-sit the paper in question. The awarding body will charge a fee for the repeat examination. If the student fails the repeat examination they must repeat the first year of the programme.
The decision to allow a student to repeat the first year of a programme rests with the Academic Board. The student’s attendance, overall effort, completed assignments and general class participation is taken into account. If it is deemed that the student has not made a satisfactory effort re-entry onto the programme will not be permitted.
