8.5 Evaluation
  1. The Board of Studies for the EMBA (Petroleum) program constitutes the examining body for all courses in this program and shall assess the standing of every student in accordance with the requirements outlined in all the Clauses below.

  2. Credit towards the EMBA (Petroleum) Degree will be granted only for those courses which have been approved as constituting part of the student’s program of study and in which the candidate has obtained a mark of 65% or higher.

  3. A candidate is required to withdraw from the EMBA (Petroleum) program if:

    1. a final grade of 'D' or 'F' is obtained in two courses, or

    2. a final grade of 'C' or less is obtained in three courses, or

    3. a final grade of 'C' or less is obtained in a repeated course.

  4. The above clause notwithstanding:

    1. to remain in the program, a candidate who obtains a final grade of ‘C’ or less in any course must normally repeat that course when next offered, and is permitted to repeat that course only once.

    2. in some instances, at the discretion of the course instructor, and with the approval of the Board of Studies, a student who has received a grade of ‘C’ or less in any course may be permitted to complete remedial work and may be re-examined. A student who passes after re-examination will have “passed on the basis of a re-examination” recorded on his/her transcript and the original grade will remain. A student who receives a grade of ‘C’ or less after re-examination will be required to withdraw from the program. The original grade will count as part of the total number of final grades of ‘C’ or less permitted before a student is required to withdraw as specified above. The pursuit of remedial work may not be offered more than twice to an individual student.
