In order to obtain a pass grade for the module you must:
Non-submission of any single item of assessed coursework will result in the award of No Grade for the module as a whole. Assessed coursework submitted late will be accepted up to five days after the submission date (or expiry of any agreed extension) but the grade will be lowered by one grade point per day or part thereof. After five days the piece of work will be deemed a non-submission, and will result in the award of No Grade for the module as a whole. This rule may be relaxed for students who can show good cause for failure to submit. Good cause may include illness (for which a medical certificate or other evidence will be required).
If a student is unable to attend the Main examination, he/she must apply to the Student Programmes Office for a Deferred examination. If a Deferred examination is not granted, then the Examiners may allow a Repeat examination.
Students who fail the module but receive a grade of 5C or better will be eligible for a Repeat examination. If a Repeat exam is taken (First Degree Regulations, Regulation 11), then the final grade is obtained from the mark for the Repeat exam together with the original marks for the remaining assessments. The grade obtained following a Repeat exam is capped at 3C, and will not be lower than the original grade.
