    A3.11.1 Course assessment regulations may provide for an Examination Committee, having due regard to the standard of the award and the course objectives exceptionally and at its discretion, to allow a student's overall performance to compensate for partial failure in the assessment for an award. Course regulations should not provide for the application of compensation to an element that forms a substantial proportion of the assessment for the award, nor to an element that is central to the fulfilment of course objectives.

    For further information about these regulations, please contact the Academic Registrar.
