Weight of marks (Grade weights)

The final grade on a unit of study is determined by the weighting rules in the terms of study for an individual course, and is stated in the course offering.

Unless otherwise stated, all modules are internally weighted as follows: 50% of the mark derives from the average of the weekly tutorial essays (of which the lowest one mark is dropped), and 50% of the mark derives from the cumulative examination (including any modifications to it by viva voce examination).

All degree courses are weighted in proportion to the ECTS points of the component courses. For example, an MA degree composed of five taught short courses (10 ECTS each) and a dissertation (40 ECTS), would weight the grades on each component according to the number ECTS points.
