Palatinate has used Freedom of Information requests to put together a handy table below, where you can find the modules of 2022, 2020, 2019 and 2018 with the highest levels of Firsts and 2:1s, as well as the average mark. You can search by subject, module code or module title, and filter by subject or level. Bear in mind:
- 2022 saw most subjects saw 24-hour online exams for most subjects (although a minority of subjects like maths and oral MLAC exams were taken in-person)
- 2020 saw 48-hour Covid-19-affected online exams, which impacted results. For exams which require calculations, there was a significant increase in attainment on the previous year. For more essay-based modules, the results tended to be higher, but not substantially different.
- 2019 and 2018 exams were all held in-person.
- Some modules had very few people taking them – for example, if you see a 100% First rate, there may have only been one person taking that module.
- A higher rate of Firsts or 2:1s can have various reasons, and different students have different ideas of what an ‘easy’ module is.
- Modules change every year – so some modules here won’t be available next year.
|Subject||Level||Module Title||Average Mark||Percentage First (%)||Percentage 2.1 (%)||20||20||19||19||18||18|
