Awarded for overall performance at Level 1 and for Level 2 for the qualifying modules i.e. all modules given in the School.

1.   A normalised rank position for each student in a qualifying module would be determined:

(a)  Rank the students in each class (best first)

(b)  Assign a rank score to each student: r= position-1 so that the top student has r=0, the next has r=1, etc.

(c)  Normalise to a class size of 100:normalised rank position R=r* 100/N were N is the actual size of the class.

2.   For each student, add up the values of R for all the qualifying modules.

3.   The student with the lowest total is the prize winner.

There will be two or three awards annually at each level valued in total £600, with no award being greater than £300.  These awards are open to full-time and part-time students.
