Academic Policies

The SIT Academic Policies apply to undergraduate, postgraduate, and other credit-bearing programmes offered by SIT and those jointly offered by SIT with Overseas University (OU) partners. These policies are in accordance to the university’s education philosophy to produce work-ready graduates imbued with the SIT DNA.

Conferment of Degrees

Criteria for Conferment of Degrees

Examinations are conducted in Weeks 14 and 15 of every trimester. Re-sit examinations normally take place in Week 7 (Recess Week). Students may re-sit an examination paper (restricted to one attempt) for failing a module in the first attempt. Failing of the re-sit requires the student to re-module at its next available offering.

Students must pass all assessments and requirements as specified in their respective programmes, obtain the total credits required of the programme and attain the required minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) at the end of the final trimester of study to be eligible for the conferment of the relevant degree from SIT.

Classification of Degree

Undergraduate students will be awarded a degree classification as follows based on the CGPA attained at the final trimester of their programme (this is not applicable for postgraduate degrees):

Degree Classification CGPA Requirement
Honours with Highest Distinction 4.50 ≤ CGPA ≤ 5.00
Honours with Distinction 4.00 ≤ CGPA < 4.50
Honours with Merit 3.50 ≤ CGPA < 4.00
Honours 3.00 ≤ CGPA < 3.50
Pass 2.00 ≤ CGPA < 3.00
