UK Visa Information

The grading system in the UK can create agonies for American Students. If a normally straight-A student recieves a 70 on his/her first paper, it's difficult to accept that a 70 in UK-terms is an A or a first. So here's a comparison to help prepare you for the grading shock!

Students with an average of 70 or higher are awarded a first-class honours degree (equivalent to an A). Other degree categories are: an upper second (equivalent to A-/B+), a lower second (equivalent to a B) or a third class (equivalent to a C) honours degree.

At the graduate level, students with a 70 or higher are awarded a master's degree with distinction. Students with a 60-69 are awarded a master's degree with merit.
