    1.5 Method One: Weighted Average Classification
    The classification shall be determined according to an overall weighted average mark (M), which
    shall be calculated for each student based on a contribution of 25% of the weighted average from
    units at level 5 combined with 75% of the weighted average from units at level 6.

    The weighted averages shall be formed by combining the marks for each unit at that level according
    to the credit values of the units.

    The resulting overall weighted average shall then be applied to the following classification table
    to determine the class of degree to be awarded:
    Method One should be applied after all rounding of marks has taken place.

    Overall Weighted average Mark (M) Honours classification to be awarded



    M ≥ 70% First Class

    60% ≤ M ≤ 69% Class Two, Division One
    (Upper Second)

    50% ≤ M ≤ 59% Class Two, Division Two
    (Lower Second)

    40% ≤ M ≤ 49% Third Class
    Below Honours

    35% ≤M ≤ 39% Pass Degree

    M ≤ 35% Fail

    1.6 Where a student has taken units at level 5 or at level 6 with a total value of more
    than 120 credits, the highest scoring unit marks with a total value of 120 credits shall be used to
    calculate the weighted average for that level, having regard to the inclusion of the marks for any
    units that are identified as mandatory in the approved
    definitive document for the programme.

    In year 2 i got
    Unit 1 (40 credit) :62
    unit 2 (20 credit) :72
    unit 3 (20 credit): 60
    Unit 4 (20 credit): 58
    unit 5 (20 credit): 54

    if in year 3 level 6 for example i get:
    Unit 1 (40 credit) :60
    unit 2 (20 credit) :70
    unit 3 (20 credit): 60
    Unit 4 (20 credit): 58
    unit 5 (20 credit): 65

    I don't understand what regulation 1.6 means. How would the university calculate my marks ? what is my weighted average for both year? how do i calculate ? and what would i get overall?

    I was wondering if someone could help me out. I would like to know what I would need to get on average this year (3rd) of university in order to get a 2:1 or what I would need to get on each module at least to get a 2:1 My second year was worth 40% and my third year is worth 60% of my final university grade.

    These are my modules and grades from last year and they were all 15 credit value.

    1: - 15 credit Module - 60 %
    2: - 15 credit Module - 40%
    3: - 15 credit Module - 53%
    4: - 15 credit Module - 62%
    5: - 15 credit Module - 65%
    6: - 15 credit Module - 46%
    7: - 15 credit Module - 40%
    8: - 15 credit Module - 61%

    And these are the modules that I am doing this year

    1:– 15 credit Module
    2:– 15 credit Module
    3: – 15 credit Module
    4: – 30 credit Module - Dissertation Module
    5: – 15 credit Module
    6: – 15 credit Module
    7: - 15 credit Module

    Help would be greatly appreciated guys
