Students commencing or repeating Level 4 study in full prior to September 2022
Please note that the Levels of study referred to below are those used in the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications (FHEQ)
SCOPE: The following degree classification algorithm applies to all students entering Level 4 or repeating Level 4 in full prior to September 2022. Please see here for students commencing or repeating Level 4 study from September 2022
This degree algorithm also applies to those students entering their degree programme directly into a higher level of study, as follows:
- All students entering directly into Level 5 prior to September 2023
- All students entering directly into Level 6 prior to September 2024
To obtain an Integrated Masters award of MSci Physiotherapy, a student must pass 120 credits at Level 4, 120 credits at Level 5, 120 credits at Level 6 and 120 credits at Level 7. Condonement of failure in any year, is not normally permitted. Clinical elements of the programme cannot be condoned or compensated.
A student’s degree classification will be calculated as follows:
FIRST CLASS HONOURS
A weighted average module mark of at least 70%;
SECOND CLASS HONOURS (Division I)
A weighted average module mark of at least 60%;
SECOND CLASS HONOURS (Division II)
A weighted average module mark of at least 50%;
Weighted average module mark: the sum of 20% of the average module mark obtained at Level 5, 30% of the average module mark obtained at Level 6 and 50% of the average module mark obtained at Level 7.
Module: a 15 CATS-credit unit.
(a) For students repeating a year of study at Level 5, 6 or 7 it will be the marks achieved for modules taken in the repeat year that will be used in the classification.
(b) Only students who satisfy the examiners in terms of the programme requirements for progression to Level 7 set out in 1F11.1 will be offered re-assessment of failed Level 6 modules capped at 40%.
(c) Students failing to meet the criteria for a Integrated Masters award as set out in 13.B.1 will be awarded with the appropriate Bachelor's degree award attained at Level 6 under Regulation 1A.
