Pretty shit results.
Public Law (15 credits)- Got 72% and 51%, total 62%.
Criminology (15 credits)- Got 54% and 58%, total 56% (supposed to be the easy module).
Land Law (30 credits)- Exam worth 30% of the module, got 65%.
Equity and Trusts (30 credits)- Exam worth 30% of module, got 50%
So turn you only deserve 50% of your credits. Sucks dude.
Okay? It's a top 5 university in the world and one of the hardest degrees to take. The results aren't terrible, chill.
I don't understand what your problem is?
You can’t win them all bud
Well I definitely had to pay.
Apparently you had to be living in Scotland 3 years prior to be eligible. Did it cost £9k for you?
I wish. I’m not from EU so I got to pay £14220
Wow, why did you even go? What's wrong with Canada? £14k is worth more than @skrinkle's house.
Did you at least get a government grant?
I did not. It is a good school and it actually would end up being cheaper than a Canadian school based on living costs and all. I actually did get $500 grant for doing reasonably well in high school and I somehow never applied for it during my undergrad. Lol
Is it still the best if no one can actually do well in it? I guess it's just for the name.
I can assure you there are people who can pull it off, that's why it keeps the prestige
It's just a completely different system than what everyone is used to in the US. Not one university student in England will get 85% or higher for the year, it's impossible. It's not just my uni.
40-49% is below average work. 50-59% is satisfactory work. It's "okay" work that's expected for a student, my results were in the higher range of this. There's nothing wrong with getting in this range, it's a good satisfactory level. 60-69% is exceeding the expectations of the tutors and is a highly respected grade to get and what I'm aiming for. 70%+ is showing a professional, high quality level of work and the student would be on track to making some serious advances in their career. It's difficult to get this result.
A 50% grade in England is equivalent to a 70%/80% grade in America. We just have different ways of marking.
Also, hell yeah I took the course just for the name. Do you think I really give a shit about Law? It's all about impressing future employers at the end of the day. I'd prefer a 60% at my uni, than an 80% in a uni ranked 20th.
Yeah, in my experience tests are really easy to get in Canada, they only test you on stuff that they teach you. You are not expected to go too far beyond the material. If you don't get an A-A+ you shouldn't be in university (in Canada).
It's probably the same difficulty as the UK, just marked differently. Idk @SAKARINBO can you confirm?
My masters course in uk was easier than my bachelors in Canada, so I disagree. Different programs may vary.
Fair enough. Did you go to St. Andrews?
Glasgow School of Art. University of Glasgow awards their degrees and therefor sets their standards
Glasgow is a good uni. What did you do in your exams? Is it drawing/painting/sculpting something and then writing an essay on it?
