    Does anyone know what you have to achieve to get the different pass rates on the midwifery degree?

    In most degrees it's 70% for a First, 60 for a 2:1, 50 for a 2:2, 40 for a 3rd and 35 for an ordinary. There's some discretion, so some borderline cases may not follow that (for example you could get 69 and get a First or get 70 and get a 2:1). I can't imagine Midwifery is any different, but I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong!

    a first is 70% or more
    2:1 is 60-69
    2:2 is 50-59
    Third is 40-49

    Is that what you mean?

    For my first degree I got 59.5% and it was rounded up to a 2:1.

    So the percentage you get would be an average of all your work - uni and placement?

    Yeah, some stuff is weighted to be worth more though, like my dissertation was worth 40% of my overall mark (thank god as that was the best mark i ever got)
