2.12 Year 3 MMORSE Progression and Outcomes

The possible outcomes of the third year of MMORSE are as follows:

  1. Permitted to proceed to the fourth year of study.
  2. Required to graduate immediately with BSc MORSE.
  3. Required to take further attempts.

In order to progress to the fourth year of MMORSE you must have a year mark of greater than, or equal to, 55% and have passed (at the 40% module pass mark) whole modules equating to at least 60 CATS.

If you do not have a year mark of greater than, or equal to 55%, you will not be permitted to continue to the fourth year of the MMORSE degree. You will be considered for a BSc and, if you meet these requirements, will be graduated immediately with a BSc.

If you do not meet the requirements for a BSc you will be required to take further attempts for failed modules. Unless there are accepted mitigating circumstances this will usually be for the BSc award. You may choose instead to be considered for an exit award.

Students Allowed to Proceed

Students should be aware that the CATS passed in the third year form part of the requirement for the overall award;

  • 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.

You may choose to graduate early with a BSc even if you have met the progression requirements to continue on the MMORSE programme. Third year marks and classifications are calculated according the MMORSE course regulations. Further information, including significant implications regarding the timing of requests, can be found in the section on Course Transfers.
