2.4 Year 2 MORSE: Progression and Outcomes
The possible outcomes of the second year examinations are as follows:
- Permitted to proceed to the third year of study of BSc MORSE
- Permitted to proceed to the third year of study of MMORSE
- Required to take further attempts
In order to progress to the third year of the BSc MORSE degree programme you must pass at least 60 CATS of whole modules (at the 40% module pass mark).
In order to progress to the third year of the integrated Masters degree programme you must additionally have been recognised to be working at a first (I) or upper second (II.1) classification by the second year board of examiners. Typically, this means that you will have a second year mark of 60.0% or greater, however the examining board may consider your grade profile and / or other factors such as mitigating circumstances in addition. The classification by the second year board of examiners is only used for the purposes of progression to the integrated Masters programme and does not appear on transcripts. If you are registered on an integrated Masters degree programme and do not have a first or upper second classification you will be moved to the BSc programme.
Information about further attempts can be found in section 5.6 of this handbook. Students who do not wish to take further attempts may choose to be considered for an exit qualification (section 5.11).
Your overall mark for the second year contributes 30% to overall mark for BSc programmes and 20% to the overall mark for integrated Masters programmes.
Students should be aware that the CATS passed in the second year form part of the requirement for the overall award;
- To qualify for a BSc Honours degree a candidate must pass (at the 40% module pass mark) in the final two years contributing to the degree classification, whole modules equating to at least 168 credits in total, including at least 80 credits taken in the final year.
- To qualify for an Integrated Masters Honours degree a candidate must pass (at the 40% level) at least 258 CATS in Years 2-4 including at least 90 CATS in the final year.
