Credit Framework for Taught Programmes

Annex 7: Resit Marks

Information for Students, Teachers and Examiners

(Approved by Senate on 28 November 2001 and including all revisions up to September 2019)

Where a student resits a module or modules, the marks obtained should be used as set out in the table below. Assessment on repeating a module or taking an alternative module following initial failure of a module will be treated as a resit unless it has been agreed, in a particular case, that the result of the earlier assessment should be set aside.

**Where credit for a failed module is awarded via compensation, the mark used for the purposes of progression and classification will be the pass mark for the module (see paragraphs 6.3 and 12.4.1.6 of the Credit Framework). The mark shown on the transcript will not be adjusted to the pass mark, but will show the best final mark achieved by the student.

*** Except where a student is permitted and undertakes a further attempt as if for the first time (‘AFT’) on grounds of extenuation, as per the main Credit Framework, clause 7.6.1 (ii), in which case the overall final mark achieved at the AFT attempt will stand.
