The next window for the MGE will be open for 17th/ 18th   November to enter any remaining thesis grades.  If you have outstanding dissertation grades and in particular dissertation grading sheets, please send them to the KBS Postgraduate Office, cc’ing the appropriate Course Director at your earliest convenience.

The KBS Examboard is scheduled for 9am – 11am Tuesday 1st December 2020 (MSTeams invitation to follow).  The ADAA with faculty must confirm the students’ awards on KBS Examboard live excel file and return it to Records by 11am on Wednesday 2nd December.

To support the entry of awards, please find attached the KBS policy on the use of the UL discretionary bands. Also please note the difference between “Not Present” and “Defer”:

Difference between ‘Not Present’ and ‘Defer’

Defer is when the student is 'at fault', hasn't presented for, or failed modules - for example, F grade.

Students who are deferred as a result of non-completion of their dissertations are not capped. They are asked to link in to repeat and link-ins are not capped - the penalty is the payment of the fee and the delay in graduation.

Not Present is when there is an 'I' grade or the student has been given an extension, the student is NOT at fault, and is not capped. The difference between the two affects the fees students pay to resubmit.

Finally, the University Examboard is due to take place on Thursday 3rd December 2020 and other key dates are as follows:

•             Prospective grade reports & Electronic Broadsheet issued 23rd  November

•             Grade change deadline 25th  November 1pm
