if you're doing English you'll be given a 0 judging by the title.

I'm sorry that was rude, i wish i knew and i could help but I'm still doing my a-levels, however they're judged I'm sure you did great best of luck

You need to look at your course handbook and university regulations How grades are calculated varies from university to university and course to course.

I assume both semesters will be taken into consideration (why would they not?)

You need to find out if all modules are equally weighted- if they are then you just add up all your marks and then divide by the number of modules.

Sometimes however some modules carry more credits, for example might be double weighted

Ask your university department/tutor. Otherwise it should be stated in the Course Handbook/SHU Assessment Regulations.

Hi jj20199

Just in case you didn't see the last message - are you doing the MA or BA in games design? Once I know this I can find out about your final grade calculations.

Thanks,
Bridget

Hi jj20199

The course leader came back to me - sorry for the delay!

The grades from year 1 are not used with the degree classification, but if anyone wants to calculate this themselves they can log into ‘my student records’ (the link is in the top right corner of the My Hallam page) and average out the grades so far they can do so to see how they are doing academically, however the grades for the first year are to help gain the credits needed for the degree, show how grading is done and show how well students are currently doing academically, the degree classification uses the results from the best grades of year 2/3 for the degree calculations that are averaged to give a result, the university does this automatically ensuring the best possible outcome.

Student services might be able to give more in-depth details on the exact calculations

There is also a link to how the degrees are calculated below.

https://students.shu.ac.uk/shuspacec...ree-calculated

Let me know if you have any further questions!
Bridget
