This calculator is designed to use the results (or the possible/predicted results) from your Open University modules at level 2 and 3 to calculate which classification of degree you might get.
It is fairly simple, and works on the basis that you have done (or will do) 240 points at those levels, as seems to generally be the case. Hence it can’t deal with transferred credit, etc.
In some cases modules are compulsory and it seems that the classification will always use these modules first and foremost. So if you have done extra modules (ie gained more than 120 points) at a certain level then please ensure the calculator is including the compulsory modules (even if they have a lower grade). Otherwise you may need to leave out the extra modules to get the correct calculation – the calculator has no way of knowing which modules were compulsory.
Please note that none of the details you enter are sent back to me or saved anywhere – all the calculations are done by the web page on your pc.
This calculator is based on the information in the OU’s explanatory PDF, which can be rather confusing. [update: I had previously linked to the OU's own "qualification planner", which has now been discontinued]. Using this calculator might also give you an insight into how you could improve your classification.
To calculate your degree classification, use the “Add Module” button below to add the modules you have done or intend to do, specifying their level, how many points each module is worth and the grade you received (or hope to get). n.b. On some degrees certain modules cannot be counted towards the degree classification. If this is true of your degree do not enter those modules.
Then click the “Calculate Degree Classification” button to see your classification calculated below. You can use the following worked example buttons to see pre-entered examples.
