You need to know about Capping
The University is introducing capping for repeat exams and assessments from this academic year onwards. Capping means that when students repeat their exams or assessments, the maximum mark they can be awarded is the pass mark for the module – for most modules this is 40%.
How will this affect me?
Students who do not have to repeat their exams or assessments will not be affected by capping. However, if you do repeat, the maximum mark you can achieve in the repeated exam or assessment is a pass mark. For most undergraduate students, the results of Pre-Final Year exams and assessments account for 30% of the overall degree. (For students of Medicine, this could be as high as 50% of the degree). So if you repeat your exams or assessments in Pre-Final Year or Final Year, capping could have a significant impact on your overall degree.
First Year exemption
Capping will apply to all students except those in First Year Undergraduate. In the current Academic Year 2015/16, Final Year students will also be exempted as we phase in the capping policy. For more details on how capping is being phased in, please visit: www.nuigalway.ie/capping
Capping could have a significant impact on your results. It is important that you are aware of the capping policy. For more detailed information on your specific programme, please see the Marks and Standards website for your programme.
