Honours degree


The UK honours degree (Hons) is a qualification used in the UK at the level of Bachelor degree, by opposition to the Ordinary degree (or Pass degree). The honours degree classification system measures a student’s performance on an undergraduate honours degree programme. There are 4 classes that indicate the level of achievement of a Bachelor degree: First class (1st), Upper second class  (2.1), Lower second class (2.2), Third class (3rd). Most bachelor’s degrees are awarded with honours. A bachelor’s degree awarded without honours is known as a pass degree or ordinary degree.
