Best Undergraduate Students, Term I (2010-2011)

Best Undergraduate Students, Term I (2010-2011)

By Dr. angus munro (Vice President for Academic Affairs)

Every term, we recognise the best of our undergraduate students, provided that they have done the minimum number of courses during that term: those who have scored an ‘A’ overall are nominated to the Vice-President’s List, whilst those who have scored a ‘B+’ overall are nominated to the Dean’s List.

Excluding Foundation Year students, a total of 120 students (including 65 females: 54%) scored a ‘B+’ overall and thus qualified for the Dean’s List; none qualified for the Vice-President’s List. The following table gives a breakdown by College and gender.


These and unpublished data show that:

1. the popularity of the different Colleges can be ranked as Management ≈ Arts & Humanities > Social Sciences ≈ Science &

Technology > Law > Education;

2. in terms of the proportion of female students, the popularity of the different Colleges can be ranked as Education (but only a

very small total number of students) > [Management ≈ Arts & Humanities ≈ Social Sciences ≈ 50%] > Law > Science &


3. based on their absolute numbers (Table 1), proportionately more students were on the Dean’s List for the College of Social

Sciences, and fewer for the Colleges of Arts & Humanities and, especially, Science & Technology;

4. proportionately more female students were on the Dean’s List for the Colleges of Arts & Humanities and, to a much lesser

extent, Management.

Clearly the above profile regarding overall and College-specific gender ratios, together with absolute numbers of students, will be influenced by the pattern of intake of cohorts of Foundation Year students. It will be interesting to monitor whether there is any continuity in performance as students proceed through their academic programmes.

A preliminary analysis (Table 2) indicates that there is a significant difference between sessions in the proportion of students on the Dean’s List (χ2 = 14.0, d.f. 3; P < 0.01). Classes with the most good performers were in the morning, whilst proportionately the fewest high-scorers were in the weekend session. This is consistent with previous years’ analyses of between-session differences in overall performance. However it is clear that a more fine-tuned analysis is required to better understand the underlying dynamics.


I am grateful to Ms. Kong Rathana and Mr. Sam Sophorn for their help in compiling and analyzing the data.

The following are the 120 undergraduate students who qualified for the Dean’s List. This will be recorded in their academic transcripts. The students are to be congratulated on their hard work; it is hoped that this will encourage them to continue to do so, and other students to try harder in order to also earn this distinction in later terms.
