Graduating

Calculating your degree classification

How is my degree calculated? It is a question all students ask themselves approaching graduation. Here are a few tips to gratify your curiosity and help you manage your studies with a view to the final exam.
Article 23(1) of our Academic Regulations provides for the definition of "... evaluation criteria for each kind of final examination also relative to the weight of the student's curriculum ...".
Paragraph 2 lists the duties of the Chairman of the Degree Board, such as "... ensuring full compliance with exam regulations and the consistency of final evaluations with the general criteria set out by programme boards ... "

The available files provide the criteria for our chemistry degree programmes.
