|New marking system for NUI to increase number of top degrees||| Print ||
|Wednesday, 27 February 2002|
According to the Irish Times, a confidential report from the National University of Ireland has expressed concern at the disparity in marking systems between Ireland and Britain. It has emerged that students in Ireland are far less likely to be given a top degree compared with their counterparts in Britain, and this is likely to impact on their chances of future employment. To counteract this the NUI intends to introduce a new marking scheme in the next academic year whereby examiners will be able to award marks of up to 100% for a first class honours instead of the present 70% ceiling.
