This is from the handbook for my course:
"

Final awards – Honours classification
Calculation of overall classification grade for Honours classification(Bachelor’s Degree)
NOTE: (Throughout sections D6 and D7 the word ‘average’ shall be read as ‘arithmetical mean’.)
The Programme Board of Examiners will determine for each candidate: the average numeric grade of the best 90 credits at Level 6 or higher and the average numeric grade of the best remaining 30 credits at Level 5 or higher;a combined numeric grade from a weighted average of (i) and (ii) (that is, 75% (i): 25% (ii)); the candidate’s Honours classification will be considered on the basis of this combined average numeric grade."

Does this basically mean that only the average of your best grades from level 6 and level 5 are used to determine your honours classification?

Yes, that's right! The best 90 credits of Level 6 and the best 30 at Level 5. You can predict your grade and best 90/30 credits if you use a tool like gradestracker.com in conjunction with your module guides!

Thanks for the info! Does this include dissertation as well? My dissertation for final year is worth 30 credits, so if that goes well that could be a good impact.
