Operational guidance for processing of marks and awards for finalist undergraduate students - this takes into consideration the changes that have been made as a result of the contingencies being put in place around the Covid-19 outbreak.

The following documents explain processes that are being adopted for this year, purely as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak and which impact upon undergraduate degree students at different levels of study:

Process for automatically updating Level 4 modules to a Pass - this explains how SAS will be operationalising the decision by the Senate to allow Level 4 degree students to automatically pass and be awarded credits for any outstanding Level 4 modules.

Process for attributing and recording marks for dummy 'SEM1' modules - this explains how Schools should attribute and process marks upon such modules, which are being added to the SCIMS record of all undergraduate degree students (initially finalists) who have undertaken SEM1-2 modules in this academic year at either Level 5, 6 or 7.

If you have any queries in relation to the operational guidance and processes, please contact Laurence Fuller, Head of Student Records and Examinations either on Teams or on l.fuller@keele.ac.uk
