Overall assessment

Examinations, coursework and projects are taken into account in assessing each student's performance.

In the case of Honours courses, a combined mark is carried forward to be used together with the final Honours year assessment in awarding the appropriate class of degree. In Computer Science Honours, normally, the mark for Computer Science 3 will carry the same weight as the mark for Computer Science 4 in determining the degree classification.

The final grade for the year is obtained by combining the marks on examinations, coursework and major projects using the following weightings:

Unit of assessment Points
Examination for each technical module 9
Coursework for each technical module 3
Examination for Professional Issues module 4
Each major project 10

In the case of joint honours courses, your overall mark is the average of your marks in the two subjects, unless you take a non-standard combination of modules. Your CS or SE mark is calculated according to the weightings given above. The calculation of the mark in the other subject is the responsibility of the other department.

The Board of Examiners has the discretion to act in any way it sees fit; for example, it may take into account medical circumstances.
