    Hello guys! I just want to make sure I've got this straight regarding marking! Say a unit is worth 6 credits, for this unit you complete 4 pieces of coursework, 1 at a pass and 3 at distinction, does this mean that you get 6 credits at distinction as your median grade is distinction?

    Brilliant, thank you! It's nice to know that there's a little leeway even if you want to get 45 distinctions! 😊

    That's it! There is some leeway so don't panic! In an unashamedly boastful statment about my own experience of access, every piece of work I did was marked at distinction level so I never even saw this system in action hehe.
