1. Grading system

AMERICAN GRADING SYSTEM corresponds to the following notations:

Grades: a, d, c, d, f Quality points: 4.0, 3.5, 3.0, 2.5, 2.0,0.0

These grades are computed and included as part of student's official Grade Point Average (GPA). At the end of each semester students receive a report of their grades for courses taken. Any student, regardless of the length of attendance in the class, will receive for each course attempted one of the grades listed above.

All grades are awarded solely on the basis of the instructor's judgement of the student's scholarly achievement. Besides the grades given above for some courses or parts of courses students may be awarded with grades having no quality points. They are:

PS/F – Pass/Fail

AU – Audit

CR/NCR – Credit/ No Credit

WA — WITHDRAWN ADMINISTRATIVELY.

Withdrawn Administratively is given when recommended by instructor and dean for poor attendance and/or other academic violation.

AUDIT indicates class attendance only. There is no credit or grade awarded in this option.

CREDIT/NO CREDIT. The CR grade will equate to А, В or С level of competence, and will mean that a credit is granted. The NC means that no credit is granted for the course.

1. Some additional university terms

BURSARY is a stipend paid to students so that they can do academic work. Usually a bursary is only awarded to students who have proved that they deserve help by doing well in an examination.

UNIVERSITY CALENDAR is issued by Most British Commonwealth Universities once each year. It contains schedules (timetables) of the important events in the university year, syllabuses and details of course requirements (со- and pre-requisites) and required texts, lecture room and laboratory timetables, and so on.

CAMPUS is the area of a university, its buildings and immediate surroundings.

A COURSE is a planned unit of study at a school or university.

A COURSE REQUIREMENT is something that you must do so that you can do a course of study. “Physics is a course requirement for Engineering at this institute”.

A CO-REQUISITE COURSE at a university is one that must be taken with another course. For example “calculus 1 is a co-requisite with physics 1 at this university.”

A BLOCK-RELEASE COURSE is one where the students are released from work for a block of several days. Block-release courses are often used to teach apprentices at English Sixth-Form Colleges and polytechnics.

DAY-RELEASE COURSE is like block-release. Day-release students study specified courses for one day each week at a sixth-form college, technical college or polytechnic.

A SANDWICH COURSE is a course of study with some­thing in between the periods of study. In the 1960 most of the British Colleges of Advanced Technology (which later became technical universities) had sandwich courses for their students. The students would come to the college for six months and then go back to work for six months. In this way the college resources were used for all twelve months of the year, and the students gained practical experience and were able to earn money while they studied.

CURRICULUM is a statement of everything taught in a course. The syllabus is the part of the curriculum that will be examined.

A DISSERTATION is an extended piece of written work. It is usually part of a master's or a doctor's degree. If the dissertation contains much new work, such as an original scientific discovery, it is a thesis.

ELECTIVES are subjects or courses which are optional, not compulsory, dependent on choice.

GRANT in England is money paid for a student to study.

SCHEDULE is a plan for different activities at different times. In Britain a schedule is called a timetable.

A THESIS is a dissertation, or a piece of written work, submitted for a university degree. A thesis is a dissertation which contains a lot of original research work. A PhD requires a thesis.

TUITION — teaching, instruction. Money paid for instruction.

TRANSCRIPT is a list of disciplines and grades a student was awarded at the end of each semester. Final transcript shows completion of baccalaureate degree.
