What does 2:1 or 2:2 mean?

Answer

Answer

This is the UK system of degree classification. This is not the same as a GPA or other international grading systems.

UK degrees are classified as follows.

Highest to Lowest degree classification (marks out of 100):

  • 1st / Class I - 70 or above
  • 2:1 / Class II Division I - 60 to 69
  • 2:2 / Class II Division II - 50 to 59
  • 3rd / Class III - 40 to 49

Please note, this is a UK grading system only and should not be used as a direct comparison to other international systems or percentage grades. For guidance on our country specific entry requirements, please refer to our International country pages.
