The deadline for module choices for 2021-22 closes on 2nd July. Palatinate has used Freedom of Information requests to put together a handy table below, where you can find the modules of 2020, 2019 and 2018 with the highest levels of Firsts and 2:1s. You can search by subject, module code or module title, and filter by subject or level. Bear in mind:
- 2020 saw 48-hour Covid-19-affected online exams, which impacted results. For exams which require calculations, there was a significant increase on the previous year. For more essay-based modules, the results tended to be higher, but not substantially different. 2019 and 2018 exams were 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 First (%)||Average 2.1 (%)||19||19||18||18|
