Progression and classification
Information about the release of undergraduate progression decisions, marks, prizes and degree results.
You can find details of when results are expected to be published, including progression and classification decisions, in the University’s Key Dates.
For year 3 students, all HCA course results will be published on Friday 7th July unless you are exiting with an award. Year 3 students who are exiting will have an outcome published at the same time as all other graduating students.
If you are moving into your next year of study, a progression decision will be communicated via the EUCLID student view on 7th July. This will tell you whether you have been approved to proceed, or if we need to defer the decision pending resit assessment(s) or because we are missing information to enable us to make that decision.
As you work towards completion of your degree programme, we recommend that you take a little time to familiarise yourself with the regulations that govern assessment in the University, and the sources of support that the University has in place if you have queries or concerns about your own result.
The University's Taught Assessment Regulations govern the way in which undergraduate courses and programmes are assessed.
These Regulations also include links to the University’s Common Marking Scheme which applies to all the School’s assessed work, including examinations.
The University’s regulations governing undergraduate degree programmes can be found at:
Guide to Classification of Undergraduate Honours Degrees
Your honours degree will be classified in accordance with the University’s Undergraduate Assessment Regulations.
The College of Arts, Humanities and Social Science, which includes the School of History, Classics and Archaeology, produces the formal guidance to Schools on degree classification.

Impact Summary (Semester 1 courses)
The School has taken steps to collect information from each Course Organiser (academic lead responsible for each individual course) to determine the impact of industrial action upon their course during Semester 1. This has allowed the School to take appropriate mitigating action where this is required on any assessment which has been impacted. Details of courses affected are noted below. If a course is not listed, this means that the course was not deemed to require any specific mitigation, as a result of the industrial action.
All decisions taken were reviewed by the Boards of Examiners, who determine your course results in line with University Regulations, before final marks were confirmed.
