                    Bachelor of Commerce day course

 

                    General Regulations

i. The degree is composed of a number of courses which are given at three levels. Level 1 courses are offered at the commencement of the degree programme. These are followed by Level 2 courses. Level 3 courses are taken in the final stages of the degree programme.

ii. Courses are taken individually. The pass mark in each course is 40% and no compensation is allowed. The award of a pass mark in a course is subject to the additional regulations concerning course work and project based courses

iii. A student may not repeat any examination that the student has already passed. A student is deemed to have completed his/her degree requirements as soon as all required courses have been passed.

iv. Where a mark is given for course work in a subject, a pass mark will not be awarded for the course unless at least 35% is attained in the written examination in that course. The course work mark shall only be counted for the first examination offering of any course. The second examination offering mark shall therefore be based entirely on the written second offering examination paper.

v. Progress from Level 1 to Level 2

(i) Students who obtain a total of 60 credits on the combined results of the Summer and Autumn examinations of the Level 1 courses are eligible for unrestricted entry into Level 2 courses.  

(ii) Students who obtain less than 60 credits on the combined results of the Summer and Autumn examinations of the Level 1 courses may not progress to Level 2 without the permission of the Faculty of Commerce.

(iii) Students who obtain less than 60 Level 1 credits within two years of entering the Bachelor of Commerce programme may not remain in the Faculty of Commerce.

(iv) Students who obtain 20 or less credits in the combined results of the Summer and Autumn examinations of the first year may not remain in the Faculty of Commerce.

(vi) A student cannot be registered for any Level 3 course nor attempt any Level 3 examination while the student has one or more Level 1 examination outstanding.

 

 

The honours classification are as follows:

First Class Honours 70% of aggregate weighted grades.

Second Class Honours 62% of aggregate weighted grades Grade I

Second Class Honours 55% of aggregate weighted grades Grade II ;

When a student fails to obtain credit for an elective, then the student can opt to either repeat the failed elective or choose another elective. In the event that a student opts to choose another elective, he/she must re-register for that elective, re-attend and pay the appropriate fee.

 

(viii) Within Level 3 each mode may offer up to one applied course in which a supervised project assignment will form the major component of the course. Assessment of a project-based course will be based on the submitted project work together with an end of semester written examination. Up to 70% of the available marks may be allocated to the project component of the course. To pass a project-based course, a student must achieve a minimum mark of 40% for each of the written examination and project components. Where a student achieves a mark of less than 40% in either component, the student must repeat the failed component. For a repeated Level 3 project-based course, the mark used for degree honours classification will be the average of the total mark for the subject in the first examination and the total mark for the subject in the successful examination, subject to a minimum mark of 40%.

(x) With reference to the degree weighting of 1/3 for Level 2 and 2/3 for Level 3, students who have received exemptions from Level 2 or Level 3 courses will have the quality of their degree determined, on a proportionate basis, by the grades they have received from courses which have been taken at University College Dublin. Thus, grades from courses used for expemtion purposes will not contribute to the quality of the degree
