Usually this mark is calculated automatically from a full set of year 2 marks, but in the emergency progression framework we took into account the very different positions in which students found themselves at the point of the national lockdown in March depending on programme, options, exam/coursework split, and professional body requirements. We recognise that every student has been impacted by the Covid-19 crisis, whether that is because of delayed/disrupted coursework or cancelled exams. Our aim is to ensure that you take forward a mark that is a fair and appropriate reflection of your abilities.
Staff have calculated your progression mark at the Exam Boards that have taken place. You do not have to attempt to do this yourself. The mark you will carry forward to the next year (your provisional progression mark) will be calculated as follows for students who are on general degree programmes (for students who are single or joint honours):
We will calculate a weighted average from all your available Year 2 marks:
- To include all marks from completed year 2 modules.
- In addition, where modules are incomplete, we will include marks from all individual pieces of completed work from across your year 2 modules; e.g. if a piece of courseworkhas been submitted that was worth 30% of the final module mark, that will be weighted 0.3.
- The Bridging Coursework undertaken by students on programmes that do not have professional body requirements was intended to prepare you for your next year of study and will not count towards the mark for the 2nd year.
- The Bridging Coursework undertaken by students on programmes that have professional body requirements prepares you for your next year of study and will count towards the mark for the 2nd year to ensure you meet professional body requirements and to ensure your degree is valid for future employment. Each professional body has different requirements so, in this generic message, we are unable to provide all the individual programme details that you will require. This detail will have been provided from your School.
