					NEW SCHEME OF DEGREE CLASSIFICATION FOR INTEGRATED FOUR-YEAR DEGREE PROGRAMMES The rules should be applied in the following order until an outcome is reached. Credits in band 1 2 3 4 5 Modules to the value of at least and 180 credits at 70% or better Modules to the value of at least and 180 credits at 68% or better, including modules to the value of at least 150 credits at 70% or better Weighted Average In the range 0-100% In the range 0-34% In the range 70-100% in the range 65– 69% in the range 65– 69% and and failed modules worth less than 40 credits failed modules worth less than 40 credits Failed modules failed modules worth 50 credits or more: Outcome = Fail and resit (or if resits already taken then course termination) = Fail and resit (or if resits already taken then course termination) = First = First = Borderline first - refer to external examiner.

Calculating the weighted average for integrated four-year programmes The weighted average is to be calculated on the basis of all second, third and fourth year marks. Each year average is calculated first. If all modules in a year have the same credit value then the average for the year is a simple average. If the modules in a year have different credit values (e.g. some 10 and some 20) then they are weighted by their credit value in calculating the year average. Then the year averages are combined with the relative weighting of the second, third and fourth years at 20:30:50, the final year carrying the heaviest weighting. For the purposes of identifying students’ best performances on a module-by-module basis in order to meet the 180 “credits in the band” threshold for a particular class, all second, third and fourth year modules are equal (only differentiated by their credit value where applicable).
