This section will explain how to use the UniGrades website with descriptions for each of its features.
Your target grade is the final classification of degree you are aiming for at university. For example a 1st or a 2:1.
Below your target grade you will find a required grade. This is the minimum grade you will need to achieve in all your remaining assignments and exams in order to achieve your target grade/degree.
This is effectively your current grade. It takes into account all work completed so far and weighs it according to how much each respective year is worth (for example if your first year is worth 0% of your degree then no first year work is included in the calculation).
This displays how far through your current university year you are in terms of workload. It also takes into account how many credits each assignment and exam is worth as an estimate of how long it will take.
How much of your final degree grade the year is worth. You can change this in the My Account section.
This keeps a running total of how many credits the modules you have entered are worth for the year. For example if yours was displaying 90/120 this means that you haven't yet added all of your modules as the year should be worth a total of 120.
This is your grade for the active year only. It only takes into account work in the active year and weighs it according to how many credits each assignment and exam is worth.
The calendar is automatically generated for you. It uses the deadlines you enter on the grades page to fill in what days you have assignments and exams due. You can change how many days you are viewing using the Quarter, Month and Fortnight buttons. If you wish to set reminders for your deadlines you can change this setting in the My Account section.
This is the UniGrades job board. Here you will find graduate schemes, permanent jobs and contract work for recent graduates as well as summer placements, placement year jobs and part time work for current students. The job board is specifically designed with students in mind and will have new job openings being added every week.
For as long as you have a current university email address. Since this is the method of communication we use, then it is essential that you have access to a university email address.
Since UniGrades is designed solely to help students at university, it is necessary to clarify that users are infact students. Whilst there are many ways of doing this, we have found that the easiest is by verifying academic institution email addresses.
For students and graduates, it is completely free. However if you are a recruiter and wish to post a job opening on the job board there are standard fees for doing this.
