3 240 credits! Each degree in the department is made up of 16 modules each worth 15 credits You will complete 8 modules in each of your 2 nd and 3 rd years 1 st year marks do not contribute to your degree The year 2 modules have a weighting of 40% The year 3 modules have a weighting of 60% To pass a module you need a mark 40% …..but a mark of 35% will be accepted as a pass if your overall average mark is 40% (pass for credit)

4 To progress from Year 2 to Year 3 You need to have a weighted average mark of 40% with no marks less than 35% If you meet the criteria to progress you cannot re-sit modules to try to improve your overall average score.

5 As at June AverageComments 40 Progress to year 3

6 As at June AverageComments 40 Progress to year re-sits in September – note in a re-sit the mark is capped at 40

7 As at June AverageComments 40 Progress to year re-sits in September – note in a re-sit the mark is capped at re-sits in September

8 As at June AverageComments 40 Progress to year re-sits in September – note in a re-sit the mark is capped at re-sits in September Progress to year 3

10 As at September AverageComments 40 40R 40Progress to year 3

11 As at September AverageComments 40 40R 40Progress to year re-sits without residence (RWR)

12 As at September AverageComments 40 40R 40Progress to year re-sits without residence (RWR) If the mark 35%

13 As at September AverageComments 40 40R 40Progress to year re-sits without residence (RWR) If the mark 35% R 40Progress to year 3

14 Termination Each module can only be re-sat twice (ie initial attempt then 2 re-sits) A student having a fail mark after 3 attempts in any prerequisite module will be terminated A student having more than 2 failed modules after 3 attempts will be terminated even if the modules are not prerequisite

15 At June 2014 Calculate a weighted average mark based on 40% of the year 2 average mark and 60% of the year 3 average mark

16 Getting a first A weighted average mark of 70% with no more than 2 failed modules OR 8 modules with a mark of 70% and a weighted average mark of 67% with no more than 2 fails Meeting the above criteria with 3 fails will get a 2.1

17 Getting a 2.1 A weighted average mark of 60% with no more than 2 failed modules OR 8 modules with a mark of 60% and a weighted average mark of 57% with no more than 2 fails Meeting the above criteria with 3 fails will get a 2.2

18 Getting a 2.2 A weighted average mark of 50% with no more than 2 failed modules OR 8 modules with a mark of 50% and a weighted average mark of 47% with no more than 2 fails Meeting the above criteria with 3 fails will get a 3 rd class degree

19 Getting a 3rd A weighted average mark of 40%

20 Getting a pass A weighted average mark of 35%
