    My dissertation is worth 40 credits, so I wanted to know how they work out. Do they give a grade and then we divide by 2 to find out since is worth 2 modules or what?

    this is probably a question best aimed at your dissertation supervisor.

    It will be the same as the grading for any other module, it's just worth more credits.

    If you get 70% for your dissertation, then that's the same as getting 70% in two modules.

    Thats what I was thinking but I only do 6 modules and normally they only pick the 5 top best modules that you did. I did not really do well in one of my modules so I wanted to be able to calculate with the dissertation to see roughly how much I will need to get what I want. Thank you, going to try ask my supervisor but this time of the year they take their time replying back.
