    Hey, I'm just wondering does the first year at the Uni of Reading count toward the final grade? How much?
    I heard you only need 40% to pass but if someone could explain for me then that would be great!
    I do Psychology, in case that's useful information lol

    Majority of unis don't count the first year into the final grade. As long as you get a 40% in most unis you pass the year, pretty much any grade you achieved in that yer is then meaningless.

    Hi,

    Your first year grade does not impact your final year grade.

    To get on to the second year of your degree, you need to achieve a minimum average grade which, as far as I'm aware, for most people is 40%.

    However, Part One is still very important as it provides the foundation for your following years and without this knowledge you will struggle. Therefore, you can see that your performance in first year will likely affect how well you perform next year and beyond.

    Your first year is a great time to put into action good habits that will stick with you throughout your degree.

    Your personal tutor will be able to confirm this and can give you information directly relevant to your course as my knowledge comes from a general understanding and my own experience.

    I hope that helps, feel free to ask if you are till unsure or want to know something else.
