It is essential that Boards of Examiners comply with any University or programme-specific regulations for student progression. This guidance is intended to provide additional notes and advice on arrangements for Boards and does not seek to replace the regulations. In the event of any divergence of view, the regulations must have primacy.

All University regulations are available here . Advice on interpreting the regulations is also available from the Student Progress Service.
