A rare post on matters relating to student representation, but I was wondering if any of you can help be with this:
I am seeking information on how different universities (and even different sections within the universities) grade their Masters and other taught postgraduate programmes. I would be grateful for as many responses (please email answers to me) as possible to the following questions:
1). In the marking scheme, what are the main bands for allocating marks?
2). In the final award scheme what possible outcomes exist? e.g. Fail, Pass, Good Pass, Merit, Distinction, A, B, C and so forth...
3). What are the numerical bandings and requirements for each of the various degree award levels?
Thanks in advance.
