2015/16 Results – Undergraduate Students
Module Marks and Status
The transcript shows an overall Mark and Status for each module as held on the University database. The Module Status tells you whether you have passed or failed the module. The enclosed should match any preliminary results you have already received from your School. If there are any discrepancies, please contact your School as soon as possible.
If you have any modules with a status of ‘Fail: right to be reassessed’ you must complete resit work, detailed instructions for the completion of coursework will follow from your School. You should contact your School Office if you have not received instructions within 2 weeks of receiving your results. If you are required to resit any exams you will be expected to do so in August this year.
Students who commenced Stage 2 (UG or IM) in 2013/14 or Stage 3 (IM) in 2014/15 - if you do not complete or fail your resits this summer you have the right to take a third and final attempt at the first opportunity during the 2014/15 academic year. You can proceed to the next stage carrying fails in 20 credits of non-core modules which you can resit during the next academic year. You will not be allowed to register on the next stage of your programme if, following August resits, you have failed more than 20 credits or any core modules in which case you will be able to sit your final attempts as an external student.
Students who commenced Stage 1 of their programme in 2013/14 onwards - you will be entitled to a total of two attempts at any module or stage of your programme, and may only proceed carrying failures with the express permission of the PEC Committee.
If you have mitigating circumstances which prevent you from taking your resits you may apply to the University PEC Committee to defer either attempt until a later date.
If any modules show a status of ‘Fail’ this means you have failed your final attempt and do not have the right to resit. You should refer to the End of Stage Decision at the foot of the transcript and contact your School Office if you need any more information about your status.
End of Year Decision
At the bottom of the transcript you will find your End of Stage Decision. In the majority of cases this will be one of the following:
‘Proceeding Normally’ – you have fulfilled all requirements and successfully passed the year.
‘Resit Required’ - you have assessment to resit.
Resit examinations will take place between Monday 22 August to Friday 2 September 2016. If you have resits you must make sure you are available for this whole period. The timetable will be published on this website week ending 29 July.
The End of Stage decision will also indicate if you are not permitted to proceed or resit due to academic failure, are changing programme or taking a leave of absence. Exceptions to the normal progression regulations are occasionally approved. Your School or Student Progress Service will inform you if this applies in your case. If you have any questions about your results, or end of stage decision, please contact your School Office.
Most of you will have been successful in obtaining the award you were aiming for and we congratulate you on your achievement.
Your transcript includes overall module marks and a progress decision for each year of your programme, you will find your final degree classification or award at the end of year 2015/16.
If you are not eligible for an award because you have failed modules, you may have the option to resit once only. You should contact your School to discuss the options available to you.
If you have registered your intention to attend a University Congregation Ceremony in July 2016 you will receive confirmation of your place by email shortly. It is very important that you contact us if you were expecting to attend but now cannot or you no longer require all tickets you have been allocated.
