The following request for information was made to the University:
“For each of the foundation of legal knowledge / core law subjects taught on undergraduate programmes provided by the University:
(a) the average mark attained by students sitting the first examination in each subject in the academic year 2009/10.
Please provide the information based on the actual marks attained in the respective examinations and not on ‘compensated’ or ‘capped’ marks.
Please exclude data related to resit examinations taken at a later exam. Where, for example, the first examination was taken in May 2009 and there was a resit examination in August 2009 the average mark should be based on the marks attained by all students taking the exam in May, whether or not they were sitting the examination for the first time or resitting. The marks attained by students in the August resit should not be taken into account.
(b) the percentage of students attaining an examination mark of 40 or above in the first examination for each of the subjects in the academic year 2009/10
Again, as above, please base calculations on the actual marks attained and limited to the first examination.
The information requested should be restricted to those who, by the university’s regulations, sat the examination so please exclude those who failed to attend the examination and may have been awarded a mark of zero.”
The information provided by the University is published below:
IMPORTANT: The University of Bedfordshire operates a marking scheme from 0 to 16 instead of percentage marks with a pass mark of 5.
The information provided by the University is published below showing the average mark and the percentage who were awarded a mark of 5 points or over.
