Hello,

I think I am right in saying I need 61 or above on my dissertation to get a 2:1 classification overall, however, I could be wrong.

I worked it out that I got 14% out of 25% for second-year modules.

So this year (final year) is worth the remaining 75%

14% from the second year = 60 - 14 = 46.. 46% out of 75%?

I do five modules Overall. However, the lowest mark module does not count, and I end up with four modules for the final year. The way I have worked it out is by eliminating my worst module and doing this calculation..

67.4 + 57 + 60.5 + (60.2 this mark is 'assumming' I get 61 or above on dissertation) = 245.1/ 4 = 61.275

61.275/ 100 x 75 = 45.95 + the 14% from second year = 59.95??

So am I right in saying I need 61 or more in my dissertation to get an overall classification of a 2:1?

Help is greatly appreciated!

You need to speak to your university about it because different universities and different courses are weighed differently

They said this via email -

Degree Classification

The class of degree will be based upon your final Award Mark. The Award Mark is:
· 25% of the mean mark from all L5 modules
· 75% of the mean mark from the best 96 credits from L6

To get a degree with honours and a classification, you have to achieve 120 credits at all three levels. However, the final Award Mark allows you to have a low score in 24 credits at L6 which won’t count towards your degree classification (but you still have to gain the full 120 credits).

The Award Marks and classifications are:
70%+ = 1st class
60%-69% =2:1 class
50%-59% =2:2 class
40-49% = 3rd class
<40% = Fail
