2.2 Year 1 MORSE: Progression and Outcomes

The possible outcomes of the first year examinations are as follows:

  1. Permitted to proceed to the second year of study.
  2. Required to take further attempts.

In order to progress to the second year of the degree programme (outcome a) you must pass (with a module mark of 40 percent or above) the following core-required modules:

  • EC106 Introduction to Quantitative Economics
  • IB104 Mathematical Programming 1
  • MA137 Mathematical Analysis
  • MA106 Linear Algebra
  • ST115 Introduction to Probability

You must also have an overall year mark for the year of 40 percent or more.

You must pass at least 84 CATS of whole modules; this criteria is automatically met when you pass all core required modules.

If you do not meet the above requirements then the Exam Board will require you to take further attempts in certain modules in September. More information about further attempts can be found in section 5.6.

Students Allowed to Proceed

Your overall mark for your first year counts 10% towards the overall degree mark.

You may be given an informal classification at the end of your first year; however this is not official and will not form part of your transcript but will give you an idea of how you are progressing.
