How is the degree classification calculated?
If for example, I don't get 60% or above for all modules, but I achieve a 60% overall in my final year (level 6), will I pass the whole Biomedical science course with a 2:1?

Also, I wanted some information on 'Borderline classification' - Is borderline classification when for example, if they calculate all my module marks of level 6, and I achieve 58%, then they will give a 60% overall, is that right?

Your first example depends on what mark you also achieved in Year 2.

Hopefully this should explain it for you:

Is it ok for a uni to change an exam's mark scheme after 2 months from the date they gave out the results for that exam?

Was it Northumbria? This thread is in the Northumbria forum... if not I suggest creating your own thread in the University life forum

But my first reaction would be no...

Hi,

Two methods are used, one where they use level 5 (2nd year) and level 6 (final year) and another is where the level 6 is only calculated.

When I calculate all my module marks that I have predicted for level 6, I get 60%, even though I have not achieved 60% or above for all modules - I've calculated predicted module marks like 64 (10 credits) 65 (20 credits) 63 (20 credits) 50 (20 credits) and 60 (30 credits) - which gives me 60%? Would this be a 2:1 and would this count towards 100 credits?

I have looked at the link you gave me about degree classifcation and also borderline classification, however I am not quite sure what they mean by 'we also look at anyone on borderline I.e. if your overall mark is within 2% of a class degree (or 3% within a 1st class)'

It also says 'you will be given a higher classification if the majority of your marks lie On or above the boundary' - what does this mean?

If necessary use the full regulations:
