Final awards and classifications
The School of Mathematics Honours Board of Examiners determines degree classifications for all students on degree programmes owned by the School. For combined degree programmes owned by another School (for example Economics and Mathematics), you should consult that School for their degree classification process.
For four-year degrees owned by the School, Years 3 and 4 are weighted in the ratio of 50:50 towards the final Honours classification. For the five-year MMath degree, Years 3, 4 and 5 are weighted in the ratio 20:40:40. Note that in particular, results in pre-Honours years do not contribute towards degree classifications.
The classification award is based on the overall percentage mark, as shown in the table below.
|1st||70% or above|
The Board of Examiners considers borderline cases carefully when deciding final awards and classification. A strict definition of a borderline candidate is used, that is, a student whose mark is not more than two percentage points below the mark required for a certain classification. The criteria on which a candidate may be promoted to the higher degree classification in this situation are as follows:
- An overall profile with at least half the credits at the next higher level (these are courses that are typically taken in years 4 and 5, e.g. Level 11 courses).
- An overall profile with a better performance in higher level courses.
Boards exercise their discretion in the application of these considerations.
The BSc Ordinary degree is a qualification that can be obtained at the end of Year 3. If you have not satisfied the conditions to be awarded an Honours degree you may be eligible for an Ordinary degree as specified by the Undergraduate Degree Programme Regulations 2019/20
If you are considering making an appeal, it is important that you act promptly. The appeal process cannot be used to challenge academic judgement, that is, you cannot submit an appeal because you believe that you deserve a better mark.
You should seek advice from the EUSA Advice Place, who can support you through the appeals process.
