Compensation and Progression Compensation
A candidate who fails to attain the required pass standard in one or two of the modules in an Examination, may, nevertheless, pass the overall examination by compensation, within the limits set out below.
- Candidates may only compensate where the total credit value for which compensation is sought does not exceed 10 credits in any one semester. (In practice, therefore, a candidate may compensate in one 10 credit module or two 5 credit modules. The maximum number of modules passed by compensation between Semester 1 and 2 examinations is four – that is, no more than two 5 credit modules in Semester 1 and no more than two 5 credit modules in Semester 2).
- The marks obtained in the examination module(s) being considered for compensation must not be lower than 35p%, where the pass standard is 40%.
- Aggregate excess gross marks above the pass standard obtained in examination modules which have been passed must be at least double the weighted deficiency in the examination module(s) being considered for compensation. Where 10 credit modules are involved the marks must be weighted to reflect the number of credits.
- Compensation can only apply where all the examination marks appropriate to a particular semester are achieved at the same sitting e.g. a candidate who has been granted exemptions at a previous examination session, and is presenting in the remaining examination modules in a semester, may not pass the semester by compensation.
- Compensation may be applied only to enable a candidate to pass in the examination as a whole. It may not be applied to grant exemptions or additional exemptions.
- Diploma Supplement
What is the European Diploma Supplement?
New qualifications proliferate worldwide and countries are constantly changing their qualification systems and educational structures. With an increasing number of mobile citizens seeking fair recognition of their qualifications outside their home countries, the non-recognition and poor evaluation of qualifications is now a global problem. Since original credentials alone do not always provide sufficient information, it may be difficult to gauge the level and function of a qualification without detailed explanations. The European Diploma Supplement is a response to these challenges.
It promotes transparency in higher education and fair and informed judgements about qualifications. It aids graduate mobility and facilitates access to lifelong learning opportunities. It also accommodates rapid changes in qualifications. LYIT produces the European Diploma Supplement according to a template jointly developed by the European Commission, the Council of Europe and UNESCO.
How do I get my Diploma Supplement?
From 2010 students can access their academic documents online through a secure electronic document system. Students log into the system with their student ID and their password/pin number. The online system can be accessed via the following link: Digitary Student/Graduate Electronic System. Once logged into the system, you can view documents that are available to you. Simply follow the steps in the system. If you are having difficulty please refer to the user guide.
