OK, where as I don't know the "grade" required to come out with a first, 2.1 etc etc, I know that it is, in this order of achievement,

1 (First Class)
2.1 (Second Class, Division 1)
2.2 (Second Class, Division 2)
3 (Third Class)

The title of the subject, BA, BSc, refers to:

Bachelor of Art
Bachelor of Science

which refers to what subject field you specialise in.
Those sort of courses normally (when sandwich/industrial places aren't taken), take 3 years.

Other titles:

MMath
MChem
and other M(whatever)

refer to Master of (don't know if female graduates are called Mistresses of...?), Mathematics, Chemistry etc.

These take (normally), 4 years, and are one level higher up than a BA, or BSc.

Diplomas, (HNDs) normally take two years, and are at a level below Degree status.

My title will be BA(AccMath), for Accountancy and Financial Management & Mathematics.

Wow expression! How on earth did you know all this. I've always wondered what it meant when people said I got a 2.1 etc.

In the dim and distant past when I was a student it was possible to study for a "general" or "pass" degree which was not classified. I think in some universities students who don't make the grade can be awarded such a degree.

What a crap grading system. Why must it be so random and complicated?

Lol! No, it's the same.

Only I wouldn't refer to myself as a 'master of psychology' I would say 'I have a masters in psychology'. I guess that's just preference though!

Cos I as a Thundercat, I HAVE THE POWER !

On a serious note, it's just something I read or was told on the post application open day, until then it was a little confusing and almost jargon like.
