3 Tier Grading System for the Cardiff MBA
- Cardiff Business School
- United Kingdom
It is the belief of the current student panel that there are motivation issues imposed by the current limitations of the existing grading system. The 'Just Pass' mind-set is not productive and should be discouraged with adequate institutional framework.
The MBA program is designed to propel individuals into a work environment and as such it is strongly believed that in extremely competitive job markets, recognition should be extended to those that achieve a greater quality of academic output.
THE CURRENT GRADING SYSTEM
- Students must achieve 150 credits with an overall average of 50% and with no mark below 40% in up to 4 modules
- Students that fail more than 4 modules will be required to re-sit all failed modules including those that are within the condonable range
- Students who fail to achieve 150 credits will be permitted to re-sit a maximum of 5 modules in September. Students that fail 6 or more modules will be required to re-sit in the following academic year.
- Distinction will be awarded to those that achieve an overall average of 70% and at least 70% in the project.
This Petition recommends that a middle tier be introduced.
A Merit should be awarded to those that achieve an overall average of 60% and at least 60% in the project.
