Assessment and exams

SIM assignments, class tests and preliminary examinations allow students sufficient practice for the University's annual examinations. The examination marks account for 100% for most papers. The exception is for selected units where the coursework needs to be assessed by the University.

You must attempt all 12 units listed in the structure to qualify for the degree. Further units normally carry more weight than foundation units.


The programme is made up of a collection of full and half-units. It is normally expected that candidates will take on 4 full units per academic year and 3 years to graduate.

Those who fail a module may be allowed to repeat the module and re-sit the examination the following year, along with other new units. Units which have been passed may not be re-taken. There are a maximum of 3 attempts for each paper.

Further units may have pre-requisites made up of foundation units and/or other further units.

In the final year, a maximum of 5 full new units is permitted provided there are no other re-sit units and the required prerequisites have been fulfilled. Students are allowed to progress through each academic year until they meet the minimum requirement to be classified a graduate.

Attendance requirement

You need to have attained a minimum attendance of 75% to be allowed to sit for the SIM Preliminary exams and the SIM Bridging exams. The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore requires all foreign students issued with valid Student's Pass to attain attendance of 90% and above in any month of the course.


To complete a BSc degree, candidates must attempt all 12 units listed in the degree structure. Further units normally carry more weight than foundation units as spelt out in the classification scheme.

Graduates attend a presentation ceremony locally organised by SIM in April, although graduates are also welcomed to attend the federal University of London graduation held in March each year.
