Grades

I want to know how things will be calculated at the end, when I finish final year. I’ve heard rumours but I don’t have a clue. I have been told that my final year project is the most important, which is obviously true. But with my other modules I don’t need to work as hard, just basically pass, as if for example I get a first in my project, overall I’ll achieve a first? I don’t know. I need help.
The short answer is no. Passing all modules (assuming you mean getting the bare minimum) and getting a first in your project will not result in ending up with a first.

Without knowing the credits of the modules etc with your course it's hard to advise, the way I did this was using a grade calculator GradeCalc | the university grade calculator!

Alright, thank you, I will try using this.

Does first year grades even get calculated together with the other years or no? That’s what I also want to know as well, because I know every uni is different in terms of how they calculate everything

The majority of unis do not count the first year but as you said, some courses/unis do so you will need to check with your academics or tutors.

Hi there

How your final grades and marks are calculated would depend on your University and your course.
I would recommend having a look at the course grading guidance, if you cannot find this, maybe get in touch with your module support team.

Hope this helps.

Different unis and different courses have different rules. These are available in your student handbook or online. Check them as a matter of importance.

All the ones that are available online are kind of outdated. From 2021-22 years. So it has probably changed now.

Yeah but I don’t think they would really tell me. Since I’ve been trying to find stuff online but it’s just old stuff.
