Determination of class of BSc degree

Determination of Class Update

The class of degree you can achieve will be based on:

  • The average mark you gain from the Applied Skills exams.
  • The grade you achieve for your Research and Analysis Project.

If you have been given an exemption from any of the three papers Corporate and Business Law (LW), Performance Management (PM), or Taxation (TX), no mark is available, so cannot be included in the calculation for your average mark.

For example: a student with an ACCA average mark of 69 and a grade B for the Project will be awarded the BSc (Hons) in Applied Accounting with First Class Honours.
