3 Any H level modules taken as part of a postgraduate programme will be marked on a passfail basis. 4. What does weighting mean? Credit-weighting means, in calculating your award mark, each module mark will be given more or less weighting according to the number of credits (i.e. workload) associated with it. There are two different ways to calculate this, and some Departments prefer one calculation over the other (but they give the same result!). The first method of calculating the credit-weighted award mark is to multiply each of your module marks by the credits associated with the module, sum the result and divide by the total number of credits for the degree (180 for a Masters), as seen in Column 1 below. The second method is to take 20 credits as the base number for weighting and multiply higher or lower credit modules in relation to that base. The total is then divided by the number of 20 credit modules in the total number of credits, which is 9 for a Masters. This calculation can be seen in Column 2 below. STUDENT X (Masters) Column 1 first method of calculation Column 2 second method of calculation Module A (20 credits) Mark 55 x 20 = 1100 Module A (20 credits) Mark 55 = 55 Module B (20 credits ) Mark 62 x 20 = 1240 Module B (20 credits ) Mark 62 = 62 Module C (30 credits) Mark 60 x 30 = 1800 Module C (30 credits) Mark 60 x 1.5 = 90 Module D (30 credits) Mark 52 x 30 = 1560 Module D (30 credits) Mark 52 x 1.5 = 78 Module E (10 credits) Mark 70 x 10 = 700 Module E (10 credits) Mark 70 x 0.5 = 35 Module F (10 credits) Mark 75 x 10 = 750 Module F (10 credits) Mark 75 x 0.5 = 38 ISM (60 credits) Mark 53 x 60 = 3180 ISM (60 credits) Mark 53 x 3 =159 Total = 57 Total = is the credit-weighted award mark 57 is the credit-weighted award mark For Postgraduate Diploma or Certificate awards, similar calculations are carried out, but with a smaller total credit value (120 for PG Diploma, 60 for PG Certificate).

5 Some worked examples for Masters and PG Certificate awards are given below. Masters student W Module A (20 credits) Mark 55 x 20 = 1100 Module B (20 credits ) Mark 62 x 20 = 1240 Module C (30 credits) Mark 60 x 30 = 1800 Module D (30 credits) Mark 52 x 30 = 1560 Module E (10 credits) Mark 70 x 10 = 700 Module F (10 credits) Mark 75 x 10 = 750 ISM (60 credits) Mark 68 x 60 = 4080 Total = is the credit-weighted award mark Awarded Masters with Merit Masters student V Module A (20 credits) Mark 48 x 20 = 960 Module B (20 credits ) Mark 62 x 20 = 1240 Module C (30 credits) Mark 60 x 30 = 1800 Module D (30 credits) Mark 52 x 30 = 1560 Module E (10 credits) Mark 70 x 10 = 700 Module F (10 credits) Mark 75 x 10 = 750 ISM (60 credits) Mark 68 x 60 = 4080 Total = is the credit-weighted award mark Awarded Masters (Failed Module, even though compensated, so no Merit) Masters student X Module A (20 credits) Mark 55 x 20 = 1100 Module B (20 credits ) Mark 62 x 20 = 1240 Module C (30 credits) Mark 60 x 30 = 1800 Module D (30 credits) Mark 65 x 30 = 1950 Module E (10 credits) Mark 70 x 10 = 700 Module F (10 credits) Mark 75 x 10 = 750 ISM (60 credits) Mark 58 x 60 = 3480 Total = is the credit-weighted award mark Awarded Masters (ISM mark not above 60, so no Merit) PG Certificate student Z Module A (20 credits) Mark 55 x 20 = 1100 Module B (20 credits ) Mark 62 x 20 = 1240 Module C (10 credits) Mark 70 x 10 = 700 Module D (10 credits) Mark 75 x 10 = 750 Total = is the credit-weighted award mark Awarded PG Certificate 7. What happens if my marks are only just below the mark needed? In general, the marks awarded for modules are the only data that are used in the determination of whether a Postgraduate degree is awarded (unless additional requirements are imposed by a Professional Body). No other conditions will be applied or assessments undertaken to determine the final calculation. 8. What happens if I fail one or more taught modules? If you fail a taught module, don t panic! In most cases there will still be an opportunity to achieve the credit required for progression or an award either through compensation or reassessment. It should be noted that in some cases, due to the nature of the programme or module (e.g. where professional / vocational requirements have to be met) the following compensation and reassessment opportunities may not be available. This should be clear in the regulations for your programme but if you are not sure, speak to your academic supervisor or postgraduate administrator. 28/09/2012 5

7 Module B (20 credits): 55 (Pass) Module C (20 credits): 53 (Pass) of the module marks is below 40 and the credit-weighted mean over all modules is above 50 (again, it is 51). Therefore, the marginal failure in Module A can be compensated by the achievement in Modules B and C. REASSESSMENT If you get a module mark below 40, this cannot be compensated and you will have to be reassessed in that module. However, there is a limit to the number of credits failed below 40 in which you can be reassessed. If you get a mark between 40 and 49 and you are not eligible for compensation (either because you have failed too many modules, or because there is another module mark below the threshold for compensation, or because your credit-weighted mean is not good enough), you may also need to be reassessed in that module. For details see full rules in the Guide Assessment, Standards, Marking and Feedback. Most but not all modules can be reassessed your department will inform you about any that cannot. If you fail a module that has been defined to be non-reassessable and the failure cannot be compensated, you will not be able to progress and will fail the programme. You may, however, be eligible to receive a lower-volume award. You can only be reassessed in a module once. If you also fail the reassessment and the failure cannot be compensated, you will not be able to progress and will fail the programme. You may, however, be eligible to receive a lower-volume award. In a Masters programme, reassessment opportunities are available in modules up to a total of 40 credits, provided that no more than 60 credits have been failed, with no more than 40 credits of outright fail (ie module marks of less than 40). If you fail and are reassessed in a module, you are not allowed to gain an advantage over those who passed the module first time. Your first-attempt mark, not the mark obtained on the second attempt, is used when calculating the overall credit-weighted award mark. (The award mark will be increased to the bare minimum to pass, if the calculation based on first-attempt marks gives a result below the pass mark.) The marks for all modules, both first-attempt and any reassessments, are included on your final transcript. 9. What is the relationship between compensation and reassessment? If application of the compensation rules is not enough to give you the necessary credits, then you are allowed to be reassessed (within limits for each programme). The compensation rules may then be applied a second time, if needed, for you to achieve the credits. This means that some first attempt marks could be potentially compensatable: this happens when the compensation criteria are not met on first attempt, but there are marks in the compensation range. Reassessment in other modules might allow the compensation criteria to be met (perhaps by raising the credit-weighted mean), and so the potentially-compensatable marks can actually be compensated without any need for reassessment in those modules. After the 28/09/2012 7

8 progression meeting of the examiners, you will be asked to indicate in which failed modules you wish to be reassessed: this is a matter you should discuss with your supervisor. Example 1: a Masters student has the following profile of non-ism module marks: Module A (20 credits): 53 (P) Module B (20 credits): 38 (F) Module C (30 credits): 52 (P) Module D (20 credits): 51 (P) Module E (20 credits): 50 (P) This student must be reassessed on Modules B and F (30 credits total). Compensation is not possible because the credit-weighted mean is below 50, and also because these marks are below 40. Reassessment is allowed because there are less than 60 credits with a mark below 50, and less than 40 credits below 40. Module F (10 credits): 32 (F) Example 2: a Masters student has the following profile of non-ism module marks: Module A (20 credits): 53 (P) Module B (20 credits): 45 (F) Module C (30 credits): 52 (P) Module D (20 credits): 51 (P) Module E (20 credits): 50 (P) Module F (10 credits): 32 (F) No compensation is possible because the credit-weighted mean is less than 50 and there is a mark below 40. This student must be reassessed on Module F (mark below 40) and has the option to be reassessed in module B: there is a maximum of 30 credits of reassessment here, 30 credits have been failed, and only 10 credits of outright fail (below 40). Such cases are complex, and students should discuss their decision with their academic supervisor. If Module F is passed on reassessment, then Module B could be compensated for: for instance, a score of 60 on reassessment for Module F would give a credit-weighted mean of 51, allowing compensation for B. The award mark would then be increased to the bare pass of 50. Example 3: a Masters student has the following profile of non-ism module marks: Module A (20 credits): 49 (F) Module B (20 credits): 45 (F) Module C (30 credits): 52 (P) Module D (20 credits): 51 (P) Module E (20 credits): 32 (F) Module F (10 credits): 53 (P) No compensation is possible because the credit-weighted mean is less than 50 and there is a mark below 40. There are 60 credits of failed modules, but only 20 credits of outright fail (below 40). So the student is entitled to 40 credits of reassessment. They must be reassessed on Module E (mark below 40) and must choose whether to be reassessed on Module A or Module B. In such cases, students should discuss their decision with their academic supervisor. In order to progress to the ISM, the student needs to improve their mark on E so that it 28/09/2012 8

10 opportunities will be set out in the regulations for your programme. Further details are available in the Guide to Assessment, Standards, Marking and Feedback. FAILURE AND EARLY EXIT 13. What if I don t meet the progression or award requirements? If you do not meet the requirements, you will not be able to progress to the ISM part of your Masters programme, and if at the end of your programme you do not achieve the required credits, you will not be able to graduate with your intended award (Masters, PG Diploma etc). However, you may be eligible for an alternative award based on the credits that you have achieved. Similarly, if, for whatever reason, you choose to leave the University part way through your programme, you may be eligible for an early exit award based on credits achieved. For example, if you are on a Masters programme and you do not meet the progression requirement to move on to the ISM, you may be eligible for a PG Certificate (60 credits). In some programmes, you may be eligible for a PG Diploma (120 credits). 28/09/
