Norrington Table Results 2021/22 released

The latest Norrington Table has been released, covering results of the 2021-22 academic year.

St Catherine’s has been placed sixth out of the 30 Oxford colleges that accept undergraduate students.

The ranking is calculated by taking the degree classifications (first class, 2:1, 2:2 and third class) that were awarded to final-year undergraduate students, assigning them a value and ultimately expressing this as a percentage of the potential score achievable. The higher the percentage, the higher a college scores in the table.

In this year’s data, 57 Catz finalists achieved a first-class degree, more than any other college, and 66 were granted a 2:1, which translated as a score of 77.2%.

Commenting, Professor Kersti Börjars, Master of St Catherine’s, said: ‘This excellent result is due to the hard work of our students and all those who teach them. The consistency of our students’ performance over the past few years is reassuring.’

You can see the full table, along with a detailed explanation of how scores are calculated, on the University’s website.

The Norrington Table is named after Sir Arthur Norrington, former President of Trinity College, who devised the table in the 1960s.
