Studied all three years at Goldsmiths

Level 4 (Year 1) entrants

The classification will be calculated using the best 90 credits of Level 4, the best 105 credits of Level 5 and the best 105 credits of Level 6, weighted with a ratio of 1:3:5 to calculate the overall average mark.

You must convert to six 15 credit marks for level 4, and seven 15 credit marks for 5 and 6 and add together. This means you will have to use the 30 credit results twice:
Level 4 = 65 + 62 + 64 + 64 + 57 + 57 = 369
Level 5 = 76 + 76 + 66 + 63 + 62 + 55 + 54 = 452
Level 6 = 82 + 69 + 67 + 67 + 57 + 55 + 45 = 442

The results for Level 5 must be multiplied by 3:
452 * 3 = 1356

The results for Level 6 must be multiplied by 5:
442 * 5 = 2210

Add all three together and divide by 62:
(369 + 1356 + 2210) / 62 = 64 (to the nearest whole number)

64 = Second Class Upper Division

Level 5 (Year 2) direct entrants

The classification will be calculated using the best 105 credits of Level 5 and the best 105 credits of Level 6, weighted with a ratio of 3:5 to calculate the overall average mark.

You must convert to seven 15 credit marks for both level 5 and 6 and add together. This means you will have to use the 30 credit results twice:
Level 5 = 76 + 76 + 66 + 63 + 62 + 55 + 54 = 452
Level 6 = 82 + 69 + 67 + 67 + 57 + 55 + 45 = 442

The results for Level 5 must be multiplied by 3:
452 * 3 = 1356

The results for Level 6 must be multiplied by 5:
442 * 5 = 2210

Add both together and divide by 56:
(1356 + 2210) / 56 = 64 (to the nearest whole number)

64 = Second Class Upper Division

Level 6 (Year 3) direct entrants

The classification will be calculated using a weighted average of the full 120 credits of Level 6.

Example

Module 1 30 76
Module 2 15 66
Module 3 15 55
Module 4 30 54
Module 5 15 63
Module 6 15 62

To calculate the weighted average, you must convert to eight 15 credit marks and add together. This means you will have to use the 30 credit results twice:
76+76+66+55+54+54+63+62 = 506

Divide the total by 8:
506/8 = 63 (to the nearest whole number)

63 = Second Class Upper Division
