    I realise this might be a uni specific question (I'm at Aston if that helps) but if not what percentage do you have to get on exams etc for it to be a 1st, 2:1, 2:2 etc?

    If it is uni specific can anyone give me a rough idea?

    Thanks

    1st = 70+
    2:1 = 60-69
    2:2 = 50-59
    3rd = 40-49

    Anything under 40 is usually a fail

    Excellent, thanks!

    Yeah 40% is the pass mark for us so I guess the rest would work out about right

    Anything between 30% and 39% is generally a compensatable fail (i.e. you don't need to re-sit if you have passed well in other modules).

    Surely that's not an issue for you anyway?

    How hard can it be to pass a unit in a TV production degree?

    Some universities still have a 'pass' (i.e. effectively a '4th') as well, actually. I know Oxford does, but usually very few are given out. It's probably the hardest grade to get.

    I thought that the classification was ??

    50-59 = 2:2
    40-50 = 3rd I did not realize that this was 40-49 ?

    so if you got 50 how would you know if it was a 2:2 or a 3rd?

    As above, if this were the case would someone finishing with 59 get a third AND a 2:2? :p:

    40 up to (and including) 49 is usually a thid. 50 to to (and including) 59 is a 2:2.

    Closing as this thread is over three years old, you shouldn't bump old threads, and I think you've received the clarification you require.
