Honours Classification

Candidates shall not be permitted to repeat a course for which they have received a D grade or above for upgrading purposes.

Absence from Written Examination
If you have been unable, because of illness, to be present at a written examination scheduled by the Examinations Unit, you have to write to the Examinations Unit within two weeks of the absence to seek permission to sit a re-examination. If you are otherwise unable to take an examination at the scheduled date, you have to write to the Examinations Unit before the examination to apply for a special arrangement of your examination.

Failed courses are recorded on the transcript with an F grade. If you choose to repeat the failed course, the new grade obtained will be recorded in the semester in which you have retaken the course. Failed credits do not count toward the fulfillment of the credit requirement of the BA degree. Failed grades are included in the calculation of the Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA), Year GPA (YGPA) and Cumulative GPA (CGPA) and will be taken into account when determining your honours classification.
