I was wondering how is the degree classification worked in Northampton university. It says the mean and median will be calculated and whatever is the highest will be your given class? Does anyone know? Thanks

According to the details here, they seem to take the marks per module (weighted according to the credits the module is worth), and use those to calculate a percentage in each year.

They then apply the per-year weightings (which they say can vary by course) to get an overall percentage, and then map that to a degree classification in the usual way.

There are a few subtleties around rounding and borderline cases, but that's the essence of it.

I don't see anything on that page which says, "the mean and median will be calculated and whatever is the highest will be your given class". Is yours a postgraduate course, perhaps?
