Yes, after all, a first is 70% +. A 65% is at a 2:1.

In what context?

For UK undergraduate degrees usually 65% would be a good 2:1 which is a good result. However some unis have different scales (e.g. the OU) and that may not apply in other countries or other qualification this country (e.g. for A-level or GCSE that might be a bit lower).

Hi @lionelmessi34

I studied undergraduate physics at Lancaster. In this context, a 65% in a lab report would be good. 65 is a middling 2:1 grade. In Lancaster physics courses labs are 100% coursework without an exam at the end. Therefore lab reports are often worth a large proportion of the module. Labs can be marked slightly more harshly than other coursework assignments as there’s no exam grade to level it out.

To summarise, 65% is a good score for a lab report, well done :smile:
