2.1 In exceptional circumstances the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, with the approval of the relevant Head of School, may dispense with or amend any conditions of, or prescription by, the University Requirements for Undergraduate and Postgraduate Coursework Awards, Faculty Award Requirements and Degree, Diploma or Certificate Award Requirements.

3. Enrolment in Awards

A person who holds an award listed above in the General Award Requirements 1.1 and 1.2 may not be a candidate for that award in the same discipline.

4. Enrolment in Subjects

Except with Faculty permission, granted on the advice of the Head of the appropriate School, a candidate may not:

4.1 enrol for any subject unless a passing grade for any prerequisites listed in the Master Schedule of Subjects has been obtained within the previous four years, or

4.2 enrol for any subject unless the candidate concurrently enrols for any corequisites listed in the Master Schedule of Subjects for which passing grades have not been obtained in a previous year.

5 Advanced Standing

5.1 Candidates for awards of the Faculty may apply to obtain advanced standing as detailed in the Advanced Standing for Previous Studies and Recognised Prior Learning Policy and associated procedures.

5.2 Candidates are advised that degree specific Award Requirements may specify advanced standing provisions unique to that degree.

5.3 Candidates are advised that such advanced standing obtained may be subject to cancellation as specified within degree specific Award Requirements.

6. The Grade of Pass Conceded

6.1 The grade of Pass Conceded may be recommended by the School directly on the basis of the particular examination. This grade may also be awarded by the Faculty following consideration of the student’s overall result for the year.

6.2 A candidate who is granted the grade of Pass Conceded in a subject shall, for the purposes of Requirement 4.1, be deemed to have passed the subject and shall be credited with the appropriate credit points, but may not enrol for a more advanced subject in any discipline requiring the first as a prerequisite except with the approval of the appropriate Head of School.

6.3 The number of credit points that may be credited at Pass Conceded level shall not exceed 18 for a three year degree and the equivalent for degrees of greater length.

6.4 A candidate awarded the grade of Pass Conceded may apply to the Head of the School concerned for permission, at the next regular examination in that subject, to attempt to convert that grade to a Pass grade.
