# why is it so confusing?? Watch talk to the uni Official Rep

1. In the Northumbria university student handbook, it states that at levels 3 and 4, students will need a level average of 30%, and level 5 average of 40%.plus, students must complete all components and pass each module with pass mark of 40%.
So does that mean if I have got 40% in each module but an overall level average of 35% for example, I would have passed the year? I'm confused because surely we require 40% as the level average to progress to next academic year? Does that mean the level average of 30%+ is a pass?
2. If you have got 40% in each module, you will have exactly 40% as level average.

If you are Level 3 & 4, a level average of 35% would allow you to progress into next academic year.

If you are Level 5, a level average of 40% would NOT allow you to progress unless you have achieved at least 40% anyhow in the resit. Otherwise board will ask you to repeat.

I just have collected my result last week, the result for undergraduate should be released this Friday I suppose? At this time you can email your tutor to provide you a full set mark, if you still feel confusing, your tutor can clearly explain to you about whether you can progress into next level with your marks.

So is level average basically average of all modules? Eg module 1: 65%, module2: 68% and module 3 : 75%, would mean my level average is 69.3% overall? Or would it be
Weighed against the credits?
So if mod 1 and 2 are worth 20 credits and third is worth 10 then would it calculated like this :
65/100 x 20/120
68/100 x 20/120
75/100 x 10/120?
I called the faculty at the university to ask about results day and they said it's available on 8th july on my marks at 12 pm

The latter is correct. Don't call faculty... email your programme leader or tutor you feel close with
