University of Gloucestershire, Undergraduate Degree Calculator

Even though you may have received all your marks from the University of Gloucestershire, at least provisionally, you may find yourself waiting a while for your official degree classification as it goes through the Board of Examiners. Information is available on exactly how they calculate this, which I have made into this calculator so you can work it out yourself quickly and easily as it can get quite confusing.

Abstract from "Academic Regulations for Taught Provision - Academic Year 2015/16"

In calculating the classification band in which a student falls, the Board of Examiners will use two methods. The method giving the higher result will be used to determine the classification.

Method 1

This is based on the average of the best grades at the level of the award amounting to 90 CATS, rounded to the nearest whole number. If the rounded average is within 1% of a classification threshold (50, 60 or 70%), the student will be upgraded to the higher class if both of the following criteria are met:

a. there are marks for at least 60 CATS (e.g., 4 single modules) at the level of the award in the higher class;

b. there are marks for no more than 30 CATS (e.g., 2 single modules) at the level of the award in the mark range of the class below that of the rounded average.

In the case of a student with ungraded credit at the level of the award, method 1 may be used provided there are grades for modules worth 75 CATS points.

Method 2

This is based on the average (not rounded) of the best grades at the level one below that of the award amounting to 90 CATS, weighted at 40%, plus the average (not rounded) of the best grades at the level of the award amounting to 90 CATS, weighted at 60%, rounded to the nearest whole number. If the rounded average is within 1% of a classification threshold (50, 60 or 70%), the student will be upgraded to the higher class if both of the following criteria are met:

a. there are marks for at least 120 CATS at both levels in the higher class;

b. there are marks for no more than 60 CATS at both levels in the mark range of the class below that of the rounded average.

In the case of a student with ungraded credit at the level one below that of the award, method 2 may be used provided there are grades for modules worth 60 CATS points.
