Motivational Merit & Distinction

main content

Merit will be applied to students having achieved a credit weighted average of 60% or more at the first exam and having passed all exams. Distinction will be applied in Years 1-3 (and Year 4 for Integrated Masters Programmes) for all full-time courses if a student has achieved a credit weighted average of 70% or more at the first attempt and having passed all exams.

A candidate who satisfies the requirements of the general and course regulations governing the award of the degree of Bachelor or Diploma of Higher Education or Certificate of Higher Education will be granted the appropriate award “with merit” if the credit weighted average of the full course is 60% or more or ‘with distinction’ if the credit weighted average of the full course is 70% or more.

PEGASUS contains information if a student has progressed into year 2, 3 or 4 with merit or distinction
