Determination of class of degree


The class of BSc degree will be based on both:

 

  • The ACCA average mark determined from the exam marks in the Fundamentals Skills papers (F4–F9)

 

  • The grade achieved for the Research and Analysis Project.

 

The ACCA average mark will be calculated by taking the numerical average of the marks achieved in the Fundamentals Skills papers (F4–F9) that you have sat and passed.

Where the calculated average mark is not a whole number, the calculated average will be rounded up or down accordingly. If you have been given an exemption from any of the three papers F4–F6, no mark is available and so will not be included in the calculation of the ACCA average mark.

The class of degree for each combination of ACCA average mark and Research and Analysis Project grade is shown below.

      Class of Degree
