A Pass Conceded (PC) may be granted by a Faculty Assessment Review Group, provided a students overall performance is considered to warrant such a concession. A Pass Conceded allows a student to progress to another course for which the former course is a prerequisite. A PC should not be submitted by course authorities.
In deciding whether a student is eligible for the award of a PC (Pass Conceded), Faculty Assessment Review Groups apply a standard concession algorithm. An undergraduate student will be considered for the award of a Pass Conceded on a mark returned by the course authority that falls between 46 and 49 inclusive, provided that any of the following conditions is met:
Whenever a Faculty Assessment Review Group decides not to award a PC in accordance with the standard concession algorithm, that decision should be able to be justified.
The 18 UoC rule is interpreted as meaning that, if less than 18uc have been granted prior to the application of the concession algorithm, then any number of PCs can be granted in that round.
