If you’ve failed in an ACCA exam and passed in the next attempt, the marks of which exam will be considered in deciding the final grade for the B.Sc. degree from OBU?September 18, 2019 at 7:46 pm
Only the mark from the exam when passed is taken into accountSeptember 30, 2019 at 11:44 am
Trust you all are keeping well!
I have just completed OBU BSC degree in September 2019 – Period 38 ,and my transcript and certificate are to be delivered by 31-Dec-2019. Will I be able to attend the OBU Graduation ceremony in Dubai to be held on 22-Feb-2020, as I am based in Dubai?
Thanks & Regards

I am sure you will be sent an invitation asking you if you wish to attendOctober 1, 2019 at 5:47 am
Thank you for you reply.
As of now I haven’t received any email from OBU relating Graduation Ceremony, though I heard that they will send an invitation along with the award letter and certificate.
Would appreciate if you could just confirm about their actual procedure, for instance; they practice to send an email for this or otherwise.

Please be patient – you will be sent everything in the fullness of time. You have nearly 5 months until the graduation, it’s not like it’s next week.

I failed my first RAP attempt and my grade will now be locked at C. I am worried if this will affect my class of degree. I have average of 68 marks in applied skills papers and even though the page linked below says 68 average marks with a C means First class honors, a friend of mine is not so sure and got me worried. Does anyone here know if I will still get a first class? Thanks!!October 15, 2019 at 10:49 am
68 average mark for what were papers F4-9 ( sorry have no idea what they now call them!) + C grade for RAP = First class honours
This can be checked in the Info Pack (somewhere around p. 72 there is a table) so please ignore the scaremonger /naysayer here who is telling you otherwise
So chill baby, chill!!

Hello everyone, my average scores from F5 to F8 is 215. Obviously, very low. However, I have been studying FM for 6 months now. I am aiming for a 2:1.
What do I need to do to achieve this?April 4, 2020 at 10:58 pm
What do you mean your average score is 215- the Average score must by definition be less than 100.April 5, 2020 at 6:58 am

I apologise. What I meant to say was, my scores for f5 to f8 add up to 215.April 5, 2020 at 4:57 pm
Your average when rounded seems to be 54. To get a 2.1 you would need an average over all six papers of minimum 58 and a report grade of an A. Given that the average report grade worldwide is C (so your likely outcome) would mean the average would need to be at least 60. Currently you are looking at a lower second regardless of report grade.April 7, 2020 at 12:28 pm

Thank you for your reply. I want to take a chance with FM, which is my last shot. If I get 75 in my FM, my total score could be 290, and average will be 58. I know that given my past performance, this seems quite idealistic, but I am willing to put in the work. Is this worth it?April 8, 2020 at 7:47 am
By all means go for it!
However at the same time try to be realistic so you don’t end up disappointed. I would estimate that only about 3% of reports get an A grade and some markers are mean and rarely if ever give an A. It can come down to who marks it and whether you are lucky there or not. So as I stated above your likely outcome will be a C for your report or possibly a BApril 8, 2020 at 8:57 pm
Hi, everyone. I would like to confirm my OBU Degree classification.
I was able to achieved these marks for my Applied Skills exam:
F4 – 71
F5 – 51
F6 – 62
F7 – 59
F8 – 67
F9 – 56
It totals 366 hence my average mark would be 61. Regardless of what my RAP result is, i would get an upper second classification. Am i correct?April 11, 2020 at 8:21 am
As mentioned above this can be checked in the Info Pack which has a grid to show exactly what is needed both in terms of average mark and report grade. (Somewhere about page 75 I think)
