Hey guys

I've scored 75 in my first two semesters however my dissertation isn't going well.

The passing mark for the same is 50

I was wondering whether I will be awarded an overall 2:1 provided that I score 50 in my dissertation?

That's right, my question is even if I score a 2:2 in my dissertation I'm still getting a 2:1 overall right?

You should mathematically, but i would try and score higher, though no one really fails their disseration or at masters in general (notts), the fail rate is low at Nottingham anyways. Your alot more likely to get a 2:1 then anything else.

Hi, it would put you at like a 66/67% overall providing you got 30/60 credits in the dissertation.
If I’ve done it correct lol (2:00am sort of tipsy).

Hi im starting an MSc course @ UoN in September.

Why are your grades, 1st, 2.1, 2.2 not distinction, merit, pass if your @ masters level?

Also, if u can manage a 60% score you'll achieve a 1st... so there's still probably a realistic chance, good luck.
