Rules for Level 3 Re-sits
Please note that the arrangements at Level 3 are
different from Levels 1 and 2, and Registry will write individually
to students to explain their options.
Final level students should note that it is possible to graduate
with one 20 credit failed module in their results profile. Retaking
the module for a maximum of 40 marks may be necessary if the module
is compulsory for award. It may not be possible to change a degree
classification by resitting a module, however, so final level
students are advised to consult about re-sits.
A student who is not eligible for the award of an honours degree
because they fail to reach 100 credits in their final year may be
permitted, on one occasion only, to re-sit the module they have
failed. In any re-examination the mark may not exceed the minimum
pass mark as designated by the University, ie 40 for undergraduate
modules and 50 for postgraduate modules.
Students in certain professional programmes where modules are
compulsory for professional registration may be required to be
re-examined in order to graduate.
Level 3 re-examinations are normally undertaken in the next
