It is mandatory to complete all failed CU(s). According to the regulation, “the student who have failed the examination in any one year have to appear for the examination at the subsequent occasion” which means at the next relevant year and semester. A student can obtain his/her Degree only if she/he has passed all the required CUs.
When a failed CU(s) is successfully completed, the actual grade earned by the student at the repeat attempt will be shown in the detailed results sheets, transcripts, etc. with the special symbol ‘RC’. However, when computing the Grade Point Average (GPA), the grade point value assigned to repeat CU(s) will be 2.00 only.
Under the CU system, students who read for a three-year General Degree programme have up to five consecutive years from the first year to complete the Degree without penalty. Students reading for a four-year Special Degree programme have a maximum period of six consecutive years from the first year. Students need to obtain prior permission from the Faculty Board/Senate to prolong their period of study in this manner. Students who prolong the period of study without prior approval by the Faculty Board/Senate will be disqualified from obtaining a class.
