This information should be read in conjunction with UCD’s Academic Regulations, which outlines the following key points:

  • Assessment in UCD shall be graded.
  • Where assessment components are objective and quantitative (e.g. MCQs, quizzes), a numerical scale may be used to determine the component result, which is then converted to a grade (see Mark to Grade conversion scales)
