What does a 2.2 degree mean?

A 2.2 degree is part of the UK system of degree classification. This is not the same as a GPA or other international grading systems. There are different classes when it comes to UK degrees as follows. 

Highest to Lowest degree classification (marks out of 100):

  • 1st / Class I – 70 or above
  • 2:1 / Class II Division I – 60 to 69
  • 2:2 / Class II Division II – 50 to 59
  • 3rd / Class III – 40 to 49

So it is important to highlight how small the margin can be between receiving a 2:1 or 2:2 degree.
