Mathematics Moderatorship Senior Sophister Regulations

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.
  • 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.
  • 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.)
  • The examinations of the two Sophister years count equally towards the overall mark for moderatorship.
  • In order to pass an individual module, students must attain a mark of at least 40%.
  • 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.
  • There are no supplemental examinations in the Sophister years.
  • Students who fail to reach moderatorship standard (i.e. 40% on aggregation of Junior and Senior Sophister results) in their Senior Sophister year will be awarded an ordinary B.A. degree.

(These regulations apply for the academic year 2012-13, but will be different from 2013-14. Thereafter regulations similar to the Junior Sophister regulations will be applied to the module results for the Senior Sophister year, prior to aggregation with the Junior Sophister result.)
