Course Requirements
To qualify for the award of the double degree of Bachelor
of Mathematics  Bachelor of Computer Science, a candidate
must satisfactorily complete at least 216 credit points from
the Computer Science Schedule, the Mathematics Schedule and
the General Schedule, and, in so doing, satisfy the requirements
of Course Rules 108 and 107 for the Bachelor of Mathematics
and the Bachelor of Computer Science, respectively.
Minimum Performance Requirement
Candidates must maintain a weighted average mark (WAM) of
at least 65 at the end of each year, otherwise they must show
cause as to why they should be permitted to remain registered
for the two courses.
Candidates who, at the end of any year of registration,
have satisfied the minimum rate of progress requirements under
General Course Rule 8.8, but who do not have a WAM of at least
65 and who have not given adequate reason as to why they should
be permitted to continue with registration for the joint course,
will be required to transfer into either a Bachelor of Mathematics
or a Bachelor of Computer Science.
Course Program
The following program of study is recommended to satisfy
the requirements in minimum time.
