Grade-point mileage

February 28, 2013

Regarding “Classification reform will display your ‘Tutu’ and your average number” (News, 21 February). We were interested to note that Oxford Brookes University is to publish a grade-point average for all graduating students (although as described it is not a “US-style” approach). However, it isn’t the first UK higher education institution to do so.

The Arts University Bournemouth issues transcripts that give the classification but also the weighted average for each level and the overall average through which the classification was determined. We have been doing this for more than a decade and suspect we are not alone.
