    Hey everyone! I'm not sure where to post this, because although it has to do with being an international student, I need to know my grade because I'll be applying to graduate schemes/jobs in the UK very soon.

    Can you please confirm if this information is correct?

    Honours UK

    First Class 70-100 %

    2:1 60-69

    2:2 50-59

    Meaning that if my grade when converted to a percentage is between the 60-69%, I have an equivalent to a 2:1 degree in the UK?

    Sorry if this sounds too vague!

    ...............!
    It's not just a straight match of numbers, you also need to consider what the whole spread of grades is. You might come from a system where only 3% get more than 70% or where 80% get more than 90%.

    Thank you for replying!

    Problem is we do not have that kind of diferentiation. We get a grade out of 20, no room for mitigating circumstances or similar, and my grade is not influenced by my coleagues. If I do a straight forward proportion, I will finish with a 68,5%. I really have no idea what my coleagues got for a final grade (I know the highest was an 18/20, and there were people with all kinds of grades, from 11 up to 18). No one gets lower than a 10, otherwise you will not finish your degree.

    My only doubt is that this is too straightforward for British employers and after going through a ton of fases someone decides my grade is lower than it is...
