How are 1sts, 2:1's, 2:2's etc awarded? Qouta? or straight pass mark?
In other words, is there a certain pass mark that is decided every year (and if so does it stay the same from year to year?), or is it a qouta? By that I mean, do some people HAVE to get 2:2's and 3rds, because they performed the lowest in the year.
So, if you got 90% in your degree, but this was the lowest mark, would you be given a 3rd? or a fail? Is it not theoretically possible for everyone to get a first?
