    11. For the calculation of scores for classification purposes in the degree of Bachelor of Science with Honours in Electronics, the University has deemed that "Group (a)" shall consist of course ELEC S402 The Project Course plus the best 20 credits in courses at Higher level listed in Table 1, and that "Group (b)" shall consist of the best 40 credits in courses at Higher or Middle level listed in Table 1, where such credits are not taken into account in "Group (a)". Further, that "X" shall equal two, that is "Group (a)" shall be weighted at twice the value of "Group (b)". (Refer to the paragraphs on Classification of the Degree with Honours of the Regulations for the Award of Undergraduate Degrees.)
