Degree Calculator

What do you need to do to get a better degree?

Want to know how you are doing so far? Or what you need to get this year to achieve that 2:1 or 1st you are aiming for?

Well.... you can use the tool below or click here to download an Excel spreadsheet to calculate your degree average. Use the marks from your online results (Academic Summary), which are the raw marks (not rounded). Degrees are calculated by using the best 100 credits from years 2 and 3

If you have a 40 credit module this would count as 2 of your 20 credit modules in the tool below, but only use it once if this module is your lowest mark.

If your programme has 10 credit modules, please download the Excel spreadsheet from the link and use the more comprehensive 10 credit calculator (sheet two of the spreadsheet).

Most students can have one 20 credit module mark compensated* each year if it fails but is above 30% (if the total average of all modules is above 40 but one is between 30-39 it can be compensated. But you must get above 40% average overall.)  - unless you are on an NMC course (Adult Nursing, Child Nursing, Mental Health Nursing and Midwifery) or studying Social Work or Paramedic Science then all modules must be 40% or over. Please note that the pass mark for Masters level is usually 50%.

When calculating your overall degree average you'll get rounded up to the nearest %.

i.e. a 69.5% will be rounded up to a 70 and you'll get a First!

*due to COVID the university are curently allowing for two compensated modules.


This tool is a Students' Union tool, this is not an official University tool and all degree classifications are determined by the official Exam Board results released by the University. For students on some programmes your results may be calculated differently or there may be specific pass requirements for your programme / professional registration.
