Supplementary Exams

 Supplementary assessments (G13.5 and G15.1)

A supplementary assessment is one granted (where the rules for the qualification permit it and in terms of conditions set out in Faculty Standing Orders) to a student who has failed a course. Supplementary assessments should be compiled at the same time as the final assessment and be subject to the same practises and moderation procedures.

Where a supplementary assessment is granted, the final resultant mark may only be recorded as a pass (with the appropriate minimum pass mark) or a fail.

The result of the supplementary assessment may form the total and final reassessment of a student’s performance in a course and no account needs to be taken of the course mark.

A student who does not present himself/herself for a supplementary assessment shall not be entitled or permitted to have that assessment deferred unless there are in the opinion of the Senate exceptional grounds for permitting the student to do so.
