Pass by compensation means that a student who has failed to attain the pass mark (40%) in a module, may, at the discretion of the Examination Board, pass the examined module by compensation.

Pass by Compensation is automatically applied when the requirements for it have been met. 

Module marks do not change when pass by compensation is applied. The rule is only applied to the overall result for the stage/award.
