Recording of course assessment results within EUCLID

Information on recording course assessment results in EUCLID, and marking schemes.

The University operates Common Marking Schemes for Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes and courses. All Schools follow these marking schemes, with the exception of BVM&S and MBChB programmes. Further details can be found at https://www.ed.ac.uk/timetabling-examinations/exams/regulations/common-marking-scheme

Different Marking Schemes exist in EUCLID for courses that require only an overall grade ('grade only') and those courses that require both an overall mark and grade ('mark and grade'). There are also different Marking Schemes for Undergraduate Honours, Undergraduate Non-Honours and Postgraduate courses.

The Marking Schemes currently in use are listed in the tables below:

VERSGH / MTM6 Common Marking Scheme - UG Honours Grade Only

VERSMN / MTM1 Common Marking Scheme - UG Non-Honours Mark/Grade
