# LSE Degree Classification

#1
Hi. I’m starting at LSE next week and I was wondering how they calculate your final classification and whether my first year will count towards my final grade? Thanks in advance🙂

You do 4 modules a year.

In first year, they take your top 3 module grades, and average them, to give you one mark.

In second and third year, each of your 4 modules counts as one mark.

So you have 9 marks in total.

If 5 of those marks are firsts, you automatically get a first (as long as you at least pass all the others).

If 5 of those marks are 2:1s or above, you automatically get a 2:1 (as long as you at least pass all of the others).

You can also get a first (or a 2:1) with 4 first (or 2:1) marks, if your average mark in the rest of the modules is above a certain percentage.

Thanks for this🙂. I’ll make sure to work hard this year since it’ll be good to have one first/2:1 mark in the bag before starting second year

How do half modules count as compared to a full unit?

So say under one unit paper I have got 68 for a half module and 85 for the other half module, does that mean the final mark for that paper is 0.5*68 + 0.5*85?
