Certificate, diploma and degree programmes are defined in terms of credits. Every paper has a credit value associated with it that indicates its contribution to the qualification enrolled for. (Each paper's credit value applies to all qualifications to which that paper can contribute.)
The standard undergraduate paper is 15 credits, except in some professional qualifications.
A paper that must be completed to a defined standard before a student's enrolment in another paper is confirmed. For this purpose the minimum grade required is a C, except where a different grade is specified in the schedule for the qualification; eg P(D) means that the minimum grade that satisfies the requirement is D.
A paper that must be completed in the same semester as another paper, unless the corequisite paper has already been passed or waived as a requirement due to prior completion of an equivalent paper.
Some papers, similar in content, are restricted against each other. Therefore students may not credit both papers to a qualification but may study either one paper or the other.
Some papers may specify relevant knowledge or experience that you will need to successfully complete the paper.
