I have seen on here that some universities offer a 2% grade discretion if you are between grade boundaries (ie 58% to a 2:i) and others that offer a 0.10% grade discretion.

What do you think about this?

Each university has its own rules. I have never heard of 0.1%. The most common by far is rounding if 59.5 etc. Cant see there is anything to think, read or follow the rules. If you arent happy go elsewhere.

I'm happy where I am even though it is 0.1% for some courses it is 0.05%. I was just curious about what other people thought about the significant differences between the grade boundaries.
