Hello,

I'm studying at University of Portsmouth, in my final year of International Relations and Politics. I'm unsure of what to make of the results to determine whether I have got a 2:2 or not. Mods please move this to the correct forum.

Thanks

1) What is the weighting of your course? How many credits go towards your final grade ie 30:70 ?
2) What do the small percentages mean?

Year two students: 35% by written exams, 7% by practical exams and 58% by coursework Year three students: 0% by written exams, 3% by practical exams and 97% by coursework

This is what I got.

The small percentage - they're the GPA results I got.

Why are all of your grades 2-4%? You've messed up something.

That's the same question I'm asking, because I don't know how to calculate the damn thing.

Looks like UoP changed their grading system recently. You should be able to work it out now.

Sorry, that look really confusing. Why do your results only list your GPA and not the overall percentage for each module?

I'm assuming for each piece of coursework you submitted, you would have received a mark in the region of 0% - 100%. Each one of those assessments will hold a weighting towards the overall mark for that specific module. So for example, if you were awarded 70% in an exam that had a weighting of 30%, you would be awarded 21% towards the overall mark of that module.

Without knowing what marks you achieved overall for your modules, its not possible for me to help you classify what your degree is.
