Report of the Senate Admissions Committee
The Senate Admissions Committee recommended approval of the following revised
Calendar statement from the Faculty of Science concerning unsatisfactory standing:
"Fail standing will be assigned in a session where a student who
is taking more than 6 units either
(i) passes fewer than 9 units (or 60% of the units attempted,
whichever is less); or
(ii) does not pass in 15 units (or all units attempted,
whichever is less) AND does not obtain an overall average of
at least 60% in at least 60% of the units attempted.
Where a student is taking 6 or fewer units, fail standing will be
assigned if more than 50% of the units attempted are failed."
It was stated in the material circulated that the change had been proposed to
make the standards in the Faculty of Science more rigorous. It was felt that where a
student was unable to pass a full load of courses, that student should be expected to
demonstrate that he or she could attain a higher average grade in the courses that are
passed.

Committee and had allowed the student vacancy to be filled by a recommendation
from the Nominating Committee. However, it had been stressed at that time that in
the future Senate should abide by the established procedures unless those procedures
were changed by Senate. The Secretary concluded that if Senate were to adhere to

Committee.
