# Share one OU module across two degrees?

If two different degrees share a module is it possible to sit once but count it towards both degrees?

As long as it’s not level three then yes you can use it for both degrees.
Level 3 need to be 120 unique credits that haven’t been used in a different degree.

Thanks for that. So the module could be Level 3 in the first degree and Level 2 in the second degree, that would be fine?

May I ask another question: is it true if a module grade is composed of exam and TMA, they use the worst grade of the two?

So if I got 90% in the exam but averaged 70% for the TMA, my grade for that module would be 70%? They don't multiply each component by a weighting and then sum the two components to give the final score for the module?

The modules all have a level-you generally can’t use them for different levels.
Basically 1st year, 2nd year and third year. You can’t mix and match between the years.
So if you have a level 2 module that is common in two degrees you can re use it, however you can’t reuse level 3s as they need to be unique.

Some modules have that type of mark scheme but they are moving away from that for most modules. Some modules have 50/50 between the OCAS(score throughout the module) and the OES(overall examination score) -others are 70/30. And some are an average of all weighted scores.

Thanks for that.

I'm interested in Maths and Physics. Where can I find out how each individual module is scored? On the subject page it only has the brief 1 page document stating the very high level details. On the module page it only lists whether an exam, TMA etc is required. I can't see anything mentioning component weightings.

The assessment structure is given when registered on the module so afaik it is not available to those not registered on it.
I did have a look around even when logged in and can’t find the assessment strategies for modules I am not registered on.

They should be available via the Module website, often in the Assessment Guide.

Which can be accessed only when registered on a module...
