Sidebar    Degree Classification

All students are on a track that leads to either the BSc/BPharm or BSc (Hons)/BPharm (Hons) degree. CAP computation is based on all modules completed at all levels, excluding:

  1. Modules for which grades obtained have no assigned grade points (for e.g. EXE, OCT, OVS, S/U, CS/CU, IC, IP); and
  2. ES1000 Basic English Course.
