Degree classification- 3 different methodsWatch
I found this information that states that they use one method from the 3 methods listed. The first method is that they calculate the average mark from the final year units. How can this method be used is they say that your second year is worth 40% of your final degree?
It can count as 40% (method 2)...
But it's usually 40/60 or whatever it says in your course manual.
If you did badly in 2nd year but excelled in 3rd year, it would be far more beneficial for you if they put full weighting on your 3rd year instead.
The course tutor said that it counts for 40%. But they can use either of the three methods. I still don't enderstand why they would use the first method, if they have said that the second year counts towards 40% of your degree?
they use 3 methods and pick the highest calculation as a classification. if you gain a 2.1 in in 3rd year but your second year results were okish..they will calculate the degree classification only using the 3rd year. Unlike most top university Portsmouth university encourage as many people as they can to gain 1st class (70%) overall.
