I've just finished second year of university and I know my exams didn't go to well reasons including lectures making exam extremely hard and saying one thing and putting in another.
Worst case scenario if I get 45% overall in second year which is a 3rd what would I need to get a 2:1 overall? which is 60-69% bearing in mind third year is 60% of the final grade and 2nd year is 40% of the final grade. What formula should I use to work it out.
I don't need to know the percentages to know it is virtually impossible but i will try my hardest to get as high as I can.
you want 60% total
work out first year actual percentage at 40% of your grade 45 x 0.4 = 18%
your goal minus what you already have 60-18=42%
final year actual percentage at 60% 42/0.6=70%
not great at explaining things, hope this helps
