Total Modular Weighting per Semester
Students normally study modules with a total weight of 60 in each semester.  However, in Part C and D, students may be allowed to study modules up to a total weight of 70 in a semester, 120 in the Part, subject to the consent of the Head of Department.
Optional Modules not Listed
In exceptional circumstances and at the discretion of the Director of Studies or Head of Department, candidates may be allowed to substitute an alternative Loughborough University module of the appropriate Part for any of the optional modules above.
Part I of the BSc and MPhys Programmes
BSc candidates opting to take eight semester and MPhys candidates opting to take ten semesters are required to spend the year following Part B either (a) an approved course of study at a University abroad or (b) professional training.  These lead to the awards of the Diploma in International Studies or the Diploma in Industrial Studies respectively in accordance with Regulation XI.
With the permission of the Programme Tutor, MPhys candidates may take this study/training following Part C.

5. Criteria for Progression and Degree Award

In order to progress from Part A to Part B, from Part B to C, from C to D (if applicable) and to be eligible for the award of an Honours degree, candidates must satisfy the minimum credit requirements set out in Regulation XX.

 

Physics and Mathematics BSc and MPhys Additional Progression Requirements

Part A to Part B

Candidates must, in addition, achieve at least 40% in three of the four core Mathematics Modules MAA150 Mathematical Methods 1, MAA142 Linear Algebra, MAA270 Introduction to Probability and Statistics, MAA250 Mathematical Methods 2

 

Physics and Mathematics BSc Additional Degree Award Requirements

Candidates must pass either PHC001 or MAC300

 

MPhys Additional Progression Requirements

Part B to Part C

In order to progress from Part B to Part C the overall average mark for Part B must be at least 50%

 

MPhys candidates who fail, after any re-assessment

At the discretion of the Programme Board any MPhys candidate who fails, after any re-assessment, at the end of Part C or Part D, who has satisfied the credit requirements for the equivalent BSc award may be awarded that degree, the classification being based on the average mark obtained in Parts B and C in exactly the same way as for the BSc Degree (see table in Section 6 'Relative Weighting of Parts of the Programme for the Purposes of Final Degree Classification' below).

6. Relative Weighting of Parts of the Programme for the Purposes of Final Degree Classification

Relative Weighting of Parts of the Programme for the purposes of Final Degree Classification

Candidates' final degree classification will be determined on the basis of their performance in degree level Module Assessments in Parts B and C (and D if applicable). The average percentage mark for each Part will be combined in the ratio specified in the following table.

 

BSc Candidates

Part B : Part C

40 : 60

MPhys Candidates
