The following regulations apply to students commencing study within the 2013 academic year (January 2013-December 2013). For previously published regulations, refer to the Calendar archive (Academic Quality Assurance Unit website).
A candidate who misses an examination as the result of a genuine mistake about the scheduled time of the examination may be considered for a Special Pass. A candidate wishing to be so considered must, within 72 hours (excluding weekends and statutory holidays) after the starting time of the missed examination, submit a completed statutory declaration to the Associate Registrar (International/Student Services) and report to the Head of Department/School which set the examination paper.
If the Head of Department/School is satisfied that the candidate's work in the course and results in other courses are substantially above minimum pass standard, the Head of Department/School may recommend to the Dean of the Faculty that a Special Pass (S) be awarded by the Faculty at its examiners' meeting. To assist in coming to a decision, a Head of Department/School may require the candidate to take a special test or examination.
A candidate may be given only one Special Pass in his or her university career, at this University.
