TSM students are governed by the College, TSM Course, and TSM Subject examination regulations. Official College regulations are published in the annual College Calendar. Each student’s module results are compiled for each of their TSM subjects at the departmental level. Following the Annual and Supplemental examinations they are sent to the TSM Course Office where each student’s results for both subjects are combined. The TSM subject results for each student are put before the relevant TSM Court of Examiners meeting. Each TSM Subject/Department is represented and the meetings are chaired by the TSM Course Director. Following these meetings, the overall results for each subject, together with the TSM overall result for that examination is published on the College website and on the TSM Notice-boards at the Nassau Street entrance, Arts Building. Results are published anonymously, by student number in numerical order. The TSM Course Office will not give out results over the phone.

Extract from College Calendar (K4)
19 To rise with their class students must (a) attend satisfactorily the lectures given in the subjects of their course each term, as required by the University Council, the school or department committees and the two-subject moderatorship management committee, (b) perform the prescribed exercises (essay, tutorial or practical work), (c) pass, in accordance with the two-subject moderatorship course regulations, the prescribed examinations in both subjects, and (d) meet special examination requirements as prescribed and published by each school or department. See also GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INFORMATION, section II.
20 For information on assessments in each subject see CONTENT OF SUBJECTS.
Grading scheme: Results for all examinations are published according to the following grades:
I = 70-100, II1 = 60-69, II2 = 50-59, III = 40-49, F1 = 30-39, F2 = 0-29.
Annual examinations: Annual examinations are held during Trinity term.
Assessment methods: All students taking the same module (that is enrolled under the same module code), in the same examination session, are assessed using the same method(s).
Compensation scheme: Some modules or module elements are non-compensatable, as specified by the relevant departments and schools. Subject to this, compensation of failed modules may be permitted as defined by College regulations, details of which are found in §§ 23-26 below.
Supplemental examinations: Supplemental examinations are held in the Freshman years and the Junior Sophister year for pattern A students at the beginning of Michaelmas term. Students who pass their end of year examinations at the supplemental (or special) examination session and who are eligible to proceed to the next year will have their overall result recorded as ‘pass at supplemental’. There are no supplemental examinations in the Junior Sophister year for pattern B (and C) students and in the Senior Sophister year.
Re-assessment requirements: Candidates who are unsuccessful at the annual examination session will be re-assessed in failed modules during the supplemental examination session by taking such elements as required by the departmental or school regulations.
Within the two-subject moderatorship course, an ‘element’ of assessment would generally refer to an end-of-year examination, course work, class test, practical laboratory requirement, field trip requirement, oral and aural examination, where the assessment forms part or all of a specific module’s assessment requirement.
Absence from examination: Students who have been absent from any or all examinations without permission from the Senior Lecturer are governed by the regulations applying to students in the relevant years, §§23-26, in one or both subjects. Permission to repeat the year will normally be granted only to students who are considered to have made a serious attempt at their examinations, or who have been able to provide the Senior Lecturer with acceptable reasons for absence from examination.
21 Students who in any year have failed to satisfy any one or more of the conditions defined in §19 will not, except as provided in GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INFORMATION, receive credit for the year. The two-subject moderatorship court of examiners may permit them to repeat the year, if they are entitled to do so (see GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INFORMATION, section II, and §§19-20 above and §§23-26 below), or may exclude them from the subject(s).
22 Students granted permission to repeat the year are required to repeat both subjects in full. They must attend lectures and perform such exercises as may be required in both subjects in accordance with GENERAL REGULATIONS AND INFORMATION, unless exempted by the Senior Lecturer. For details see §§19-20 above and §§23-26 below.
TSM Regulations for each standing
The full official TSM Regulations on examinations and progression are available in the College Calendar, TSM Section K1-K9.
Each TSM subject has its own regulations governing issues which include course-work requirements, attendance, tests, course pre-requisites and annual and supplemental examinations and requirements for progression. All subjects should have a course handbook showing these regulations which may be available in the departmental office or online. Students should also check their subject notice-boards and email regularly for further information from their departments.
