official guidance and calculator

Level 1 (Year 2 SWJT):

Single-subject students take 120 credits including 20 of Discovery modules. Students must pass the 100 PFP (core) credits. They do not have to pass Discovery modules.

CS/Maths students must pass the 115 credits specified as PFP in the catalogue.

Level 2 (Year 3 SWJT):

Single-subject students take 120 credits including 20 of Discovery modules or options. Students must pass any 100 credits which can include Discovery modules.

CS/Maths students must pass 100 credits overall.

Level 3 graduating (Year 4 SWJT):

Students must pass a minimum of 100 credits and have a Classification Average (grade average from Levels 2 and 3) of at least 40 to graduate. Resits may be necessary if the credits are required or the classification average can be altered by passing the exam.

Level 3 MEng/MSci:

Students must pass a minimum of 100 credits and have a Classification Average from Levels 2 and 3 of at least 50.

Level 5 graduating MEng/MSci:

MSc (different email)

MSc students study 120 (or 125 in some cases) credits of Level 5 and Level 3 modules, and a 60 credit Level 5 project. 180 credits in total.

To graduate with MSc they must pass 150 credits overall with 135 credits at Level 5. Their grade average is taken across all 180 credits studied and must be at least 50.0

Leeds for Life grade codes

A common code at Level 3 is C, eg. 0C, where a student has not yet completed their project. C denotes they have an agreed extension.

In some cases students have Academic Integrity penalties that must be expunged. This is essential. Even if a student has passed 110/120 credits they must remove any Academic Integrity penalty before next year, during the resit period.

You will know if they have a penalty if you see a grade of I/H/G against a module.

CS/Math students may see further codes U/V.
