The V-coding policy allows, in exceptional circumstances, all grades received in a semester or year to be nullified. Such modules are marked as V without a numerical grade, with the effect as if the modules had never been taken.

V-coding is applied rarely, only in situations when all other options for academic progress have been exhausted. Students cannot request V-coding, but it may be offered by the Proctor or delegate where the circumstances are considered sufficiently serious to justify it.
