For Year 1 and Year 2 Students
For major subjects/themes a student must achieve an overall aggregation score of 10.3 or above plus an overall aggregation score of 9 in both coursework and exam elements.
For minor subjects/themes a student must achieve an overall aggregation score of 9 or above. There is no requirement to attain a particular grade in each element.
To proceed to the final year of a Bachelors with honours degree a student must achieve (following any opportunities for reassessment) an overall aggregation score of 9 or above with no more than 30 credits condoned.
If you fail any of the following elements you may be asked to resit:
Creative Writing courses
If, however, you fail to participate in any or all of the examinations you can disqualify yourself from continuing at Lancaster. You will be expected to be in Lancaster to take your resit examinations on the days and times specified by the University in the resit examination timetable. You must take this into account when making your summer vacation plans. If you do not get the marks you need in the late summer resits or if you do not attend you have no automatic right to any further reassessment opportunity and sadly, may not be able to continue with your degree unless the Board of Examiners grants you an exceptional second resit opportunity as an external candidate the following June. This means you will have to suspend your registration for a year. It is very important therefore that you prepare properly for any resit examinations.
Remember: even if you do not wish to continue with a subject beyond the first year, you still have to pass the assessment.
