This fresh commitment, published today by Universities UK and GuildHE [Tuesday 21 July 2020] on behalf of the UK Standing Committee for Quality Assessment (UKSCQA), outlines six new guiding principles as well as recommendations for universities when deciding the final degree classifications awarded to students.
