A mark is allocated for each module. Each mark is multiplied by the number of credits allocated to the module to which it relates. The resulting numbers for each module in the year of study are totaled together and divided by 120 (the total number of credits for a year of study), resulting in an average mark. This calculation is done for both Year Two and Year Three and an overall average calculated, weighted 30:70 between Year Two and Year Three. The overall average for Year Two and Year Three is rounded to the nearest whole number (decimal places up to point four are rounded down, decimal places of point five or more are rounded up). The initial indication of degree classification is then reached as follows:
70 to 100: First class
60 to 69: 2:1 class
50 to 59: 2:2 class
40 to 49: 3rd class
Less than 40: Pass degree.
