Hi Paul

From September 2017 the way degrees are classified is changing

Up to this year it used to be that the worst 2nd year module and worst 3rd year module would be dropped and not included in how your degree classification was worked out. This system has now changed and only one module can be dropped which will be your worst module from either your 2nd or 3rd year.

Also your 3rd year modules will also count more towards your final degree classification. So for example in the old system, your final degree classification grade was made up of the best 7 grades from year 2 modules and the best 7 from year 3. From this year your 3rd year modules will be worth 2/3 of your degree classification and your year 2 modules worth 1/3 so making more emphasis on Year 3 modules.

Please do check the new regulations on how degrees are classified.

Many thanks

Hi Paul

The 2017/18 academic regulations haven't been published yet. This is because some students are still sitting re-sit exams and will need to have access to the 2016 regulations. I am sure they will be published by September when you are due to enroll back onto your course.

Best wishes

Hi Kim

I am studying biomedical science and I have basically passed all my modules except one module which I got overall of34%. i have been REFERd to increase the overall module. I was wondering can I graduate lacking one module ? Excluding this specific module I have achieved 105 credits. And 120 in each level 4 and 5.

Hi there

Unfortunately you can't graduate lacking one module and you will have to return to university in September as a module retriever and re-sit the module you failed. To graduate you need to have passed 360 credits so you are lacking a 15 credit module.

You should contact the Registry Office for further help in registering your module.

Best wishes
