Mathematics Moderatorship Regulations for the Junior Sophister Year

The regulations that apply to the Moderatorship Course in Mathematics are set out in the The University of Dublin Calendar (School of Mathematics).

  • Students take modules to the value of 60 credits (30 in each term).
  • Students must register for modules to the value of exactly 60 credits (with the Administrative office of the School of Mathematics) and check that their modules are correctly recorded at the student portal by the deadline (date to be advised but likely to be in January).
  • Students will be assessed on their registered modules (only) according to the rules below.
  • Papers are set on a majority of modules at the annual examination (held in April/May). The mark for these modules may also incorporate credit for assessed work throughout the academic year as prescribed by the lecturers concerned. (For further information on assessment, consult the individual module descriptions.)
  • Results for examinations are published according to the following grades: I = 70 to 100, II.1 = 60 to 69, II.2 = 50 to 59, III = 40 to 49, F.1 = 30 to 39, F.2 = 0 to 29.
  • In order to pass an individual module, students must attain a mark of at least 40%.
  • In order to pass the annual examinations students must either
    • pass in each module,
      OR
    • pass by compensation, which means to obtain a credit weighted average of at least 40% AND pass modules totalling at least 40 credits AND have at least 30% in the remaining module(s),
      OR
    • pass by aggregation, which means to obtain a credit weighted average of at least 40% AND pass modules totalling at least 40 credits AND have at least 30% in modules totalling at least 50 credits.
  • There are no supplemental examinations in the Sophister years.
  • The examinations of the two Sophister years count equally towards the overall mark for moderatorship.
  • Students who do not attend regularly, who are absent from tests and examinations without good cause may be returned to the Senior Lecturer's office as non-satisfactory for the relevant term. Non-satisfactory students may be refused permission to take their annual examination and may be required to repeat their year by the Senior Lecturer.
  • Students who do not pass at the annual examinations are subject to regulations on repetition of year stated in The University of Dublin Calendar (Part II).

(These regulations apply from the academic year 2012-13.)
