I am currently in my final year studying law and I would appreciate it if someone could please help me work out how many 2.1s I need in each module to graduate with a 2.1 overall.
There are 6 modules each carrying 20 credits
The weighting is 30% in second year and 70% in the final year I got 55% in 2nd year (pathetic I know) with only one 2.1 in a module so what I would like to know is how many 2.1s do I need this year to graduate with an overall 2.1

Thanks
Is it simply a matter of getting an average of 60%, or do you also need to get a 2:1 in a certain number of modules? You need to check this on your uni's website
If it's simply a matter of getting an average of 60%, then you need 62.14% in your third year to get there. You achieved 55% in 2nd year, with a weighting of 30% so this will count 0.55*0.3 = 16.5% towards your end result. Therefore you need a further 43.5% out of a possible 70% in your final year. 0.435/0.7 = 62.14%

If it depends on the number of 2:1s then you have posed us a question we do not have enough information to answer.
