5 Number of attempts permitted at an examination
A student who fails to satisfy the Examiners in an examination, and who has yet to satisfy the conditions to be considered for the respective award, may be permitted or required to resit the examination up to a maximum number of attempts.
The maximum number of attempts permitted at any examination of the BA degree in Spanish and Latin Studies is three.
A student who enters an examination hall to attempt a written paper examination will be considered to have made an examination attempt. Absence from an examination will not count as an attempt.
A student who receives a result of 'Pass', 'Fail' or 'Retired' in any examination will be considered to have made an attempt.
A student may not make a further attempt at any examination already passed or for which specific accreditation of prior learning or credit has been awarded.
The mark awarded for a second or third attempt at an examination will supersede the mark previously awarded for that examination unless other provision is given in the detailed programme regulations.
If, on the third attempt at the examination for any course, a student receives the result 'Fail', their registration for the degree will cease unless the Examiners recommend otherwise in exceptional circumstances or they are eligible to proceed to the final examination with the possibility of passing nine courses (see Annex C), in which case the mark obtained on the latest occasion may be carried forward and taken into account for classification purposes and the student will be permitted to proceed to the remaining courses of the degree.
If, on the occasion that a student enters examinations to complete the degree (i.e. for the eleventh course), he or she fails in one or two courses but has passed in the nine courses required for the award (including all compulsory courses), the student will be classified and awarded the degree on the basis of the courses taken.
