General regulations for undergraduate students
The general regulations that apply to all undergraduate students are outlined in the College Calendar (Part II). The following is only a brief summary of some important points and it is not meant to either replace or override the information in the College Calendar.
- All students must register for 60 ECTS credits and those must be divided equally between the two terms.
- Students will only be assessed on their registered modules.
- Results for examinations are published according to the following grades: I = 70 to 100, II.1 = 60 to 69, II.2 = 50 to 59, III = 40 to 49, F1 = 30 to 39, F2 = 0 to 29.
- In order to pass an individual module, students must achieve an overall score of 40% or higher.
- In order to pass the year, students must achieve an overall
credit-weighted average of 40% and EITHER
- pass each of their modules (by achieving 40% or higher in each of their modules) OR
- pass by compensation (by achieving 40% or higher in modules that are worth at least 50 ECTS credits and by achieving 35% or higher in their remaining modules).
- Students who do not pass the year at the end of the Hilary term are required to present for reassessment at the beginning of the next Michaelmas term. These students will be reassessed in all failed components of the modules for which they obtained a score below 40%.
- Students who do not manage to pass the year at the reassessment session must repeat the year in full (i.e., they must repeat all their modules and all their assessment components).
These regulations apply since the academic year 2018/19.
