(3) attempts of retaking a module, but has achieved a CGPA of 2.0 and have attained competencies in some modules to enable him/her gain employment in the world of work or proceed to a different career path in education and training.
A “Conceded Pass” will be a pass granted for a course in which a final year candidate is not able to obtain a pass mark in the course assessment despite retaking a paper three times.

A Candidate will be eligible for a conceded pass under the following conditions:-

vii) In case a Candidate who does not qualify for conceded pass as stipulated above the existing provision in the semester regulations will guide as the case may be.
