4 Common Amendments

5 Changes to marks Update assessment mark Enter new mark for the component and ‘Roll-up’ to top-level components if required (ME03). Update overall module mark Re-calculate Module Mark and Module Recommendation (ME05). Check if progress or award decision is affected Re-calculate ART/Degree Classification (ME05).

7 Changes for your students on a module run by another School Changes to Module Recommendations due to Extenuating Circumstances Ask School to amend Module Recommendation Module mark has changedRe-calculate ART/Degree Classification (ES02) in case progress or award decision needs to change. Chairs Action will be required.

8 Changes to Module MarksNotify students’ Home School asap as could mean progress/award decision needs to be re-calculated Changes to Module Recommendations due to Extenuating Circumstances Notify students’ Home School asap as could affect progress decision Changes for students from another School

9 Decisions made outside of regulations or programme requirements not due to Extenuating Circumstances have to be considered by the Progress and Award Board (PAB) Remove the ART (ES02) until outcome from PAB is known. This will prevent the recommended decision being inadvertently released to the student Not Withstanding Regulations
