do british unis, york oxford etc give BA's only? because on the trinity college dublin prospectus it says 4 year course for Ba with hons, is this significant?
Nope I have a BA hons
I'm sure they do honours at most UK unis.
I've often wondered the difference too...I hope someone more learned can enlighten us!
do some universities not give out ordinaries then?
I was under the impression that the honours part was for the dissertation? I should really find out since mine is an honours degree.
you got an email from QMUL? i'm an international applicant too...waited a while for their admission...but never had an email sent to me....just wondering if you use your hotmail account or what not...
Out of my group 25 failed (due to cheating), 60 passed with honours and one passed without honours.
It seems to be very very rare that you can pass without honours these days. You either to seem pass with honours or fail completely.
yes, I use hotmail. They emailed me when they received my application and again when they asked the with/without honours question.
yes.....in life sciences at University of Toronto (which is where i'm at)...you can only come out with an honors....you can't grad without it.....that's what i heard...
Some places grade you as 1st with honours, 2.1 with honours, 2.2 with honours, 3 with honours, ordinary degree without honours and fail.
^ Thats how it's done practically everywhere I think (I don't know of anywhere that doesn't).
If you pass every year, you get honours. If you don't pass a year then the university/department can deem you to have done sufficent work to merit going on to the next year, but you are then unable to get honours in your degree, even if you got top 1st in your final year (though unlikely). I doubt many places would let you stay on into your 3rd year if you got marks which warrant "without honours" two years in a row, it shows a lack of work ethic.
Doesn't your uni give out honors? Some has like honors like *** laude...summa *** laude.. stuff like that..Is that the american equivalent?
i wonder if any international applicants are getting offers....i feel so frustrated looking at track....
