Annex D: Scheme of award
The guidelines presented below show the main characteristics of the schemes used for the assessment of students within the Economics, Management, Finance and the Social Sciences programmes, and the criteria used when classifying degree students and grading diploma students at the end of their studies. This information is necessarily abbreviated and it does not cover all special cases that the Board of Examiners may have to consider.
The Board of Examiners retains the right to deviate from, or suspend, any part of these guidelines for good reason and in the interest of academic standards and/or fairness to students.
The guidelines are divided into two sections - those that apply to all programmes (concerning the award of marks for individual courses, failed courses and re-sits and the pairing of half courses), and those that are programme-specific (concerning eligibility for the award, and the classification and grading schemes).
