    Hi all,

    Current final year Politics student studying at Aston University.

    Just wondering if a final year overall grade of 59.5 would be rounded up to a 2:1 in Aston University? there is no information on grade boundaries from the handbook, I am aware Essex and Salford University do this.

    If it helps I`ve achieved
    2nd year 56.6
    Placement 58

    and will need 61% to get 59.6 and 62% to get 60.5.


    kind regards,

    Hi,

    The website can be a little hard to navigate, but yes we round up from 0.5 like a number of other universities. You'll want to read 9.2.3 in the policy document here.

    Best of luck with your final year and getting that all important 2.1
