S-coding

S-coding is a process through which allowance can be made for special circumstances affecting the final grade for a module. It cannot be applied to modules at 1000 or 2000 level.

Where a module that has been passed is S-coded, you retain the credits but the grade is not included in the degree classification calculation. Where a module that has been failed is S-coded, you have the opportunity for a further assessment in the module as if for the first time.

To request S-coding, you must make a formal request, as described in the policy linked below, as soon as it is feasible to do so. Retrospective S-coding (after the module grade has been published) is only granted in exceptional circumstances.

There are limits on the proportion of credits in a degree programme that can be S-coded.
