- Chemical Engineering Progression and Graduation Rules -
In Years 3, 4 and 5, due to the requirements of the professional accrediting body for Chemical Engineering, progression and graduation requires passes in at least 100 credit points worth of courses AND an overall average of 40% or more for the 120 credits of study taken in the relevant honours year.

- Resits for Professional Purposes -
Students NOT achieving full passes in 100 credits will be required to take 'Resits for Professional Purposes' (RPPs) in the courses where they obtained less than 40%.
