Second Year Computer and Management Sciences BSc 2014/15

The normal load is 120 CATS credits. Candidates for honours are required to take three core modules and either all modules in Optional Core Modules List A or all modules in Optional Core Modules List B. The balance of 30 CATS credits can be selected from any module list below (Lists A, B or C), but must include at least one IB-coded module.

In order to qualify for the third year students must be candidates for honours and have at least a second class peformance in an IB-coded module. Candidates who fail to achieve this may be permitted to proceed to the third year of the respective Computer Science or Computing Systems degree.
