JMC1 progression rules
The MEng/BEng Joint Maths and Computing degrees follow the standard Faculty of Engineering rules for year progression.
The following applies to JMC Year 1 students (MEng or BEng) sitting exams or coursework to be allowed to progress to JMC Year 2.
In order to pass JMC Year 1 and qualify to progress to JMC Year 2, the candidate must satisfy the following conditions:
- A minimum of 40% for each of the following three Mathematics modules: MATH40002, MATH40004, MATH40012;
- A "Pass" mark for the following Mathematics module: MATH40009;
- A minimum of 40% for each of the two Computing modules: COMP40008 and COMP40012;
- A minimum of 50% for Computing Practical 1: COMP40009;
- A minimum of 40% overall.
Programming and Coursework
A failure to achieve the 50% mastery pass mark for COMP40009: Computing Practical 1 may mean that a candidate is required to withdraw from the degree.
Resit Exams (SQTs)
If a candidate marginally fails one or more summer exams, the examiners (at their discretion) may offer capped resits (SQTs) in September (normally, in a maximum of two papers).
More extensive exam failure may mean that a candidate is required to retake the year or withdraw from the degree.
MEng candidates must normally achieve an aggregate 2:1 performance across the first two years and in both Maths and Computing disciplines to be allowed to remain on the MEng programme. A formal decision on MEng registration is, however, made at the end of the second year.
