Mathematics in TwoSubject Moderatorship 201415
(for all combinations except Mathematics + Economics)
Senior Sophister Year (pattern B)
Note that these details are not yet final and are still subject to change.
In the Senior Sophister year, students who continue with Mathematics (rather than majoring in their other subject) must either continue with both subjects [an option available in a limited number of combinations] or major in Mathematics (which is pattern B). This page relates to pattern B.
Pattern B students take a total of 60 ECTS credits, which may includes a project (or dissertation). Half the credits excluding the dissertation should be taken in each term. Unless indicated otherwise, modules are 5 ECTS units.
All module choices are subject to them being possible within the timetable.

Senior Sophister (Mathematics pattern B) Regulations
Pattern B is available for the combinations of Mathematics with Economics, English Literature, French, Geography, German, Music, Philosophy and Psychology. This page applies specifically to the combination of Mathematics with subjects other than Economics.
 The Senior Sophister result for Mathematics counts for 50% of the overall moderatorship mark over the two subjects. The remaining 50% is contributed by the overall result awarded in the Junior Sophister year (known as part I of the Moderatorship examination), which is in turn based on both subjects.
 Students take modules to the value of 60 credits in total, (30 in each term).
 At least half of their Senior Sophister Mathematics credits must be chosen at the advanced level.
 Students must register for Mathematics 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.
 Each module is marked in the range from 0 to 100%.
 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.

pass in each module,
 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 nonsatisfactory for the relevant term. Nonsatisfactory 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 or special examinations for Senior Sophister students.
 Students who fail to pass the annual examination in their Senior Sophister year will be awarded an ordinary B.A. degree (provided that they have spent at least three yeas in the University).
 For students who pass the annual examination in their Senior Sophister year, the examinations of the two Sophister years count equally towards the overall mark for moderatorship (and in determining the class of the degree awarded).
(These regulations apply from the academic year 201314.)
