Students who fail to complete SPTH211 in 2000, but who successfully completed one of the two semester's work in that subject, will be able to obtain Credit for either SPTH2210 (first semester), or SPTH2220 (second semester), while being required to complete the replacement subject for the semester's work which was not successfully completed. If the student's performance was unsatisfactory in both semesters of SPTH211, then the student will need to complete both SPTH2210 and SPTH2220.
