S/U Option

The Satisfactory/ Unsatisfactory (S/U) grading option allows a student to take a course on an ungraded basis (i.e. no letter grade e.g. A, B, etc).

For a course opted to be graded on S/U basis, a student will receive AU for the course only if he attains a 'Satisfactory' (S) grade.

Important points for SSM Students:

  1. All courses read on the S/U basis will be excluded from the computation of GPA and hence has no impact on the Honours classification.

  2. Students are allowed to exercise the S/U option for up to a maximum of 12 AU (9 AU for students admitted directly to the second year of a 4-year programme).

  3. Only graded courses taken as GER-Prescribed Electives and/ or Unrestricted Electives are eligible for the S/U option. Students are strictly not allowed to exercise the S/U on any SSM Core, Major Prescribed Electives (prescribed sport electives and prescribed specialization) and GER-Core courses.

  4. All courses taken as minor are excluded from the S/U option.

  5. Students must fulfill a minimum of 69 AU of graded courses in order to be awarded their degree. Students have to declare the courses to be graded S/U before the start of examinations for the semester through the NTU Office of Academic services website.
