9.1 Overarching Principles

Principle 17:    Qualifications must only be awarded for the successful achievement of defined learning outcomes.
Principle 18:    The criteria for Progression and the Award of a degree must be transparent, clearly defined and fair to all students, and aligned with the requirements of the UCL Qualifications and Credit Framework.
Principle 19:    Programmes must include regular review points to support and evaluate a student’s progress throughout their programme.
Principle 20:    A student may be permitted to progress from one year to the next and/ or be awarded a degree where they are carrying a small amount of failure, as long as their overall performance is of a good standard and the requirements of any relevant Professional, Statutory or Regulatory Bodies are met.

9.2 Scope & Definitions 

1.A student must meet or exceed UCL’s threshold standards in order to Progress through their programme and be Awarded a qualification.
2.Graduate and Taught Postgraduate programmes must not include Progression Requirements. Subject to approval by UCL Education Committee or its nominee, a Graduate or Taught Postgraduate programme running over more than one year (e.g. a two-year Extended Masters or five-year Flexible Masters) may set Continuation Requirements between years of study. Failure to meet these standards after all permitted attempts may lead to failure of the programme.
3.The specific arrangements on each programme of study must be documented in the Programme Summary.
4.Details of the structures of UCL taught programmes, including information about credit, academic levels and modules, can be found in Chapter 2: Qualifications and Credit Framework
 

Professionally-accredited Programmes

5.Subject to approval by UCL Education Committee or its nominee, a programme may include additional requirements for the achievement of professional accreditation. Additional requirements must be: 
 a)Supported by specific, written evidence from the relevant Professional, Statutory or Regulatory Body, AND
 b)Reviewed annually to ensure accuracy and currency, AND
 c)Communicated clearly to students, AND
 d)Documented in the Programme Summary.
 

Non-Modular Programmes

6.Subject to approval by UCL Education Committee or its nominee, a programme may operate on a non-modular basis where there is a clear pedagogic rationale. The Progression and Award Requirements for such programmes are defined in Section 9.13: Non-modular Programmes.
 

Failure to meet the Progression & Award Requirements

7.A student who is unable to meet the Progression and Award Requirements due to illness or other Extenuating Circumstances may be eligible for a Deferral or other form of mitigation under the regulations in Section 6: Extenuating Circumstances.
8.A student who does not meet all of the Progression and Award Requirements, and has no Extenuating Circumstances material to that failure, must be subject to the regulations in Section 11: Consequences of Failure.

9.3 Condonement 

9.3.1 Definition 

1.Condonement allows a student to progress from one year to the next and/ or to be awarded a qualification where they are carrying a small amount of failure, as long as their overall performance is of a good standard and the requirements of any relevant Professional, Statutory or Regulatory Bodies are met. Students who meet the Condonement Criteria will not be reassessed. 
2.A student’s eligibility for Condonement in any given module is determined by the Programme on which the student is enrolled.

9.3.2 Condonable Range

1.For each qualification, Condonement applies only to module marks falling within the following Condonable Ranges:
 

Undergraduate Programmes

9.3.3 Condonable & Non-condonable Modules

1.All modules on a programme should be Condonable. 
2.Subject to approval by UCL Education Committee or its nominee, a Programme may designate one or more modules as Non-condonable (must be passed). In order for a module to be designated as Non-condonable it must be:
 a)A Compulsory module, AND/ OR
 b)A module essential to professional accreditation.
3.All Undergraduate Dissertations and Masters Dissertations/ Substantive Projects must be Non-condonable.
4.Where a Programme designates a module as Non-condonable, the Programme may also determine that one or more components within that module are Non-condonable (must be passed). See Section 3.11: Requirements to Pass a Module for further details.
5.Non-condonable modules must be documented in the Programme Summary.

9.3.4 Applying Condonement 

1.The Condonement regulations apply at both the first and second attempt.
2.Where a student has valid Extenuating Circumstances, the regulations in Section 6.10: Deferred Assessment should be applied before Condonement is considered.
3.If a student meets all the Condonement Criteria, and there are no Extenuating Circumstances to be considered, the module must be Condoned. 
4.A student who meets the Condonement Criteria must not be reassessed. The student will be awarded the credit, and the condoned mark must stand (i.e. the mark must not be raised to the Pass Mark) and must be included in the student’s Classification.
5.A student who does not meet all the Condonement Criteria at the first attempt must be reassessed in all the failed modules, including those modules with marks falling in the Condonable Range (see Section 11: Consequences of Failure).
6.A student who does not meet all the Condonement Criteria at the second attempt must not be permitted any further attempts at assessment.
7.Condonement and Reassessment cannot be applied simultaneously; a student who fails in more than the permitted number of credits must be reassessed in all the failed modules.
8.On Extended or Flexible taught postgraduate programmes, the formal decision on whether the student meets the Condonement Criteria can only be made at the end of the taught modules. 
 a)A student who does not pass a module in an earlier year should be entered automatically for a Resit or Repeat as appropriate under the regulations in Section 11: Consequences of Failure.
 b)A student may choose not to be reassessed in that module and instead retain the fail mark on the basis that the student may meet the Condonement Criteria at the end of the taught modules. Students should notify UCL Student Records of their intention not to be reassessed at least four weeks before the date of, or deadline for, reassessment. The student’s decision not to be reassessed will not be considered as grounds for appeal at a later date.

9.4 Provisional Progression 

1.A student may be permitted to Provisionally Progress to a subsequent year of study in the following circumstances:
 a)On programmes with a Study Abroad Year or Module, the Faculty Tutor may permit a student to Provisionally Progress if the marks from an external provider are not yet available (see Section 9.6: Honours Degree Progression & Award Requirements).
 b)The Extenuating Circumstances Panel may permit a student to Provisionally Progress and to undertake a Deferral with or without Tuition in a maximum of 30 credits in tandem with the next year’s modules (see Section 6.10: Deferred Assessment).
 c)Exceptionally, the Faculty Tutor may permit a student to Provisionally Progress and to undertake a Resit or Repeat in a maximum of 30 credits in tandem with the next year’s modules (see Section 11: Consequences of Failure).
2.Provisionally Progressed students are permitted to re-enrol, attend teaching events and access UCL facilities. However, the student must not formally Progress to the subsequent year of study until the outstanding credits are passed or formally condoned by the Programme Board of Examiners. 
3.If, after all permitted attempts at the affected modules, the student then fails to meet the previous year’s Progression Requirements, they must not continue on the programme. Some students may be eligible for an Interim Qualification, or for transfer to another programme.
4.Registration on additional modules must not be considered as grounds for Extenuating Circumstances or appeal at a later date.
5.Students should be offered the opportunity to discuss the consequences of Provisional Progression with their Personal Tutor or Programme Leader. If a student would prefer to wait until they have formally progressed before they enrol on any subsequent years of the programme, they must contact their Departmental Office as soon as possible to discuss their options and, if appropriate, request that the Faculty Tutor overturns the decision.
