3.7.1    Dean’s List

A Dean’s List will be prepared for both Semesters I and II, but excluding the Special Terms. It comprises the top 5 percent of the total undergraduate Science students (excluding those who are in their 1st two semesters of studies and whose course codes are SCI1^) and the top 7 percent of the Pharmacy students (excluding those who are in their 1st two semesters of studies and whose course codes are PMC1^^) based on the following criteria:

A) Minimum Workload

Students reading a workload of at least 19 MCs (for Science Students) and 20 MCs (for Pharmacy Students) will be considered. This workload includes all modules read in the semester under consideration, with the following conditions:

• At least 15MCs for Science students and 16MCs for Pharmacy students must be letter-graded;
• Excludes module ES1000;
• Excludes modules with ‘EXE’, ‘IP’, ‘IC’ or ‘W’ grades;
• Includes half of the MCs of an 8 MCs UROPS module, or 4 MCs, in the computation of the student’s workload in the first semester, and the remaining 4 MCs in the computation of the second semester’s workload; and
• No MCs from the Honours project module to be included in the student’s workload in the first semester, and the full MCs to be counted in the second semester.

B) Semester Average Point (SAP)

Semester Average Point (SAP) is computed from grades achieved within the semester under consideration. Only students with SAP of at least 4.30 will be considered.

Formula for computation of SAP: ∑(Grade Point* MCs)/∑ (MCs)

The computation of SAP for the Dean’s List:
• Excludes module ES1000; and
• Allows students to receive the full contribution to SAP from their 8 MCs UROPS and Honours project modules in the second semester.

 

^SCI1 is a course code given to all Science students who have just matriculated. Science students who have read and passed 40MCs will be promoted to SCI2. Science students who are not in their first two semesters of studies and have been promoted to SCI2 and above, and who have met the above mentioned criteria are eligible for Dean’s List.

^^PMC1 is a course code given to all Pharmacy students who have just matriculated. Pharmacy students who have read and passed all year 1 Pharmacy graduation requirement will be promoted to PMC2. Pharmacy students who are not in their first two semesters of studies and have been promoted to PMC2 and above, and who have met the above mentioned criteria are eligible for Dean’s List.
