  10. The University of Cambridge does not classify its B.A. degree, but awards classes in the Tripos (honours) examinations usually taken at the end of each academic year. Therefore the class of degree recorded on the HESA record is the best class obtained and not necessarily that obtained in the final year. As a result of this the numbers of first class and upper second class degrees are slightly inflated.
