How is my degree result determined?
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.
Assessment Regulations and Guide to Classification of Degrees
The University's Taught Assessment Regulations govern how courses and taught programmes are assessed.
These regulations also include links to the University’s Common Marking Scheme which is applied for all the School’s assessed work, including examinations.
To achieve a merit, a student must be awarded at least 60% on the University’s Postgraduate Common Marking Scheme for the dissertation and must pass all other courses with an average of at least 60%.
A borderline student with a coursework average of 58 or above will be awarded a Merit only if their dissertation result is 60 or above and the aggregate of the coursework and dissertation mark is 60 or above.
To achieve a distinction, a student must be awarded at least 70% on the University’s Postgraduate Common Marking Scheme for the dissertation and must pass all other courses with an average of at least 70%.
Any borderline student with a coursework average of 68 or above will be awarded a Distinction only if their dissertation result is 70 or above and the aggregate of coursework and dissertation mark is 70 or above.

The School strongly recommends that if you are considering submitting an Academic Appeal you should first study the guidance on the Appeals webpages, then contact the EUSA Advice Place, where trained advisers can offer guidance and support.
The University has produced additional guidance for Boards of Examiners to assist them in making decisions where students’ teaching or assessment has been disrupted by industrial action during semester 2 of the 2017/2018 academic session. You can read more about this on the University's industrial action FAQs page.
The possible impact of recent industrial action on the delivery and assessment of our courses was investigated by Heads of Subject area, Teaching Directors and Exam Board Convenors at the time, in consultation with teaching staff as well as students. Adjustments to course delivery and assessment were made where appropriate. These were communicated to the parties involved as well as to Boards of Examiners, where they were taken into account at all stages of ratification ranging from individual marks to progression and degree classification.
