NOTE: DOUBLE BLOCKING HAS BEEN PHASED OUT AS OF 2015. INSTEAD, THE FACULTY PREFERS STUDENTS TO DELAY YUDISIUM BY EXTENDING THEIR STUDIES FOR ADDITIONAL SEMESTERS TO TAKE ADDITIONAL BLOCKS.

Double-blocking is a way to repeat a previous years' block without abandoning the current block. So, for example, a student currently in block 3.3 can repeat block 1.3 with their juniors while still being enrolled in block 3.3.

Students have to attend only a certain percentage of lectures and tutorials, and labs that they originally failed for the block they are repeating. Normally, students that are double-blocking will need to join their juniors' tutorials, unless there are enough people double-blocking the same block. In that case, the double-blockers attend tutorial sessions composed completely of students that are double-blocking.

Students can take a maximum of one double-block per semester, while fourth-year students can take up to two double-blocks per semester.

Often, students wait until third year to double-block their first year courses because they are more similar than second-year blocks.

Double-blocking is not restricted to a maximum grade of A/B like make-up tests are. However, double-blocking carries a risk of jeopardizing both blocks being taken by the student due to the added work load. That is why, it is much better to write a make-up test first, and if you scored an A/B, attempt to double-block.
