74% but usually first year grades do not count towards your final degree, it is just to filter out useless people from the course.

Just received my provisional results two days ago: scraped a first. I'm still surprised, as I thought that I had sacrificed grades this year for an awesome social life (first year is only worth 10% of my degree total).

British politics: 81.5%
International Relations: 71%
Introduction to politics: 70%
Political analysis: 65.4%

Of course, these are subject to change.

I averaged 74% in my first year. It might not count towards my degree, but I wanted to do well to secure internships and work experience. Also, some of my modules were accredited by professional bodies so I needed to do well in these and not just aim for a university pass.

The Physical Environment: 79.1%
Statistics: 83.8%

The other two modules (not taken forward)

The Biosphere: 67% (damn that ***** of a final exam- I thought it was ecology, not dentistry!)
Environmental Management and Sustainability: 74.7%

Averaged 59% (Politics and French) from Exeter.
Could have worked harder so I can't really complain too much. Can easily pull off a comfortable 2.1 with the sufficient work next year!

77%. No major achievement though, as exams were almost completely multiple choice. Dropped a bit in the second year as the exams are largely essay based.

Which unis are you all at by the way? Just wondering if it's true that the top unis mark more harshly

As a general rule, better universities have more challenging assessments.
However, for final degree classifications, 1sts are more common at better universities.

Are you saying in your final year they hand out more 1sts?

Probably like percentage in high 60s?

Didn't mean anything anyway, only final year counted.

51% and 54% in both exams. Pass mark 50%.

Hey, if it isn't counting towards my final degree, why am I going to study hard for it?

The phrase 'filter out useless people from the course' is a bit harsh don't you think?
