JMC2 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 2 students (MEng or BEng) sitting exams or coursework to be allowed to progress to JMC Year 3.
In order to pass JMC Year 2 and qualify to progress to JMC Year 3, the candidate must satisfy the following conditions:
- Achieved at least 40% in each of the Mathematics and Computing examinations;
- Achieved at least 40% in JMC Computing Practical 2: COMP50012;
- A minimum of 40% overall.
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.
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. The final decision on MEng registration will be made based on the candidates overall performance in JMC Year 2.
