    Feel free to use the attached grade calculator (see below) to work out your overall grade classification!

    The formula used to make the spreadsheet is as noted in the University handbook Part B p.11:

    L5: 51 (20 credits), 67 (40 credits), 42 (40 credits), 53 (20 credits)L6: 66 (20 credits), 40 (20 credits), 55 (40 credits), 57 (40 credits)then the lowest Level 5 mark of 42 for 40-credit module is weighted as 20 credits in thecontribution to the programme mark (to exclude 20 credits) and the lowest Level 6 mark of 40 isexcluded from the following programme mark calculation:Programme mark = 25% x ((1020 + 2680 + 840 + 1060) ÷ 100)+ 75% x ((1320 + 2200 + 2280) ÷ 100)= 25% x 56 + 75% x 58= 57.50% (lower second class Honours degree)

    I've found this really helpful for undergrad, is there any way you could unlock it or provide the password so I can edit it for my Master's course at a different uni?

    It does need an edit: Since 2016-2017 grade boundary's changed at Salford for new students - they now match the majority of other Uni's
    40-49 (3rd) 50-59 (2.2) 60-69 (2.2) 70+ (1st).
    This is because they deduct the lowest modules (as you've noted), and they can't do this as well as have lower grade classifications!
    Thanks in advance.

    I've found the formula very helpful. You can use this the online grade calculator (at calculatorology / final grade calculator) as well to calculate grades.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
