Understanding your degree award calculation

HOW YOUR ARCHITECTURE DEGREE AWARD AND GPA IS CALCULATED:

The overall award to each graduate of a Degree Programme is calculated using the GPA (Grade Point Average) system.  Your performance across the range of modules you take will be calculated using this system, which is an average of grade-points awarded for each module weighted, according to the credit value of the modules for which the grades were approved – modules will count for 5, 10 or 15 credits. Each stage has 60 credits and you will receive a GPA at the end of each stage.

The BSc (Architecture) Degree calculation of honours is based on the final stage of the programme where the grade points are weighted so that the final stage modules contribute 100% to the degree GPA.
