As a rough guide the split is approximately 50:50 exam to coursework but this amount varies depending on the options you select. Level 1 does not count towards your final degree classification but you have to pass the first year to continue with the degree. Level 2 is worth a third of your final mark and Level 3 the rest. In your final year you will undertake an assessed dissertation of around 8,000 words. This is worth a third of your level 3 marks. CareersOur graduates have excellent career prospects.
