Grades

Graded exams are offered in a wide range of subjects, through a progressive system of 8 levels. Graded exams generate motivation and reward achievement, and the levels are recognised internationally.

Assessment bands are as follows:

  • 85-100% - Distinction
  • 75-84% - Merit
  • 65-74% - Pass
  • 0-64% - Unsuccessful

In the UK, LCM's graded exams are regulated by Ofqual, DfES and CCEA at Levels 1, 2 and 3 of the Qualifications and Credit Framework, and UCAS points are awarded for higher grades.

LCM's graded exams are now also included on the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
