Undergraduate Degree Classifications 2009/10

The tables below list the degree classifications awarded to each college for the academic year 2009/10. They also display an assigned 'Norrington score' for each college. The Norrington score, developed by Sir Arthur Norrington, former President of Trinity, in the 1960s, provides a way of measuring the performance of students at each college in finals. The score is calculated by attaching a score of 5 to a 1st class degree, 3 to a 2:1 degree, 2 to a 2:2 degree and 1 to a 3rd class degree. The total score is expressed as a percentage of the maximum possible score (ie five times the number of degrees awarded). The score allows a ranking of colleges. However, since the numbers of degrees awarded per college are small, the rankings should be treated with caution.

Results recorded Trinity Term 2010, for the degrees of: B.A., B.F.A., B.Th., M.Biochem., M.Chem., M.Earth Sci., M.Eng., M.Math., M.Phys.
