Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    so, not having a great final year at all!!

    i just failed two exams, and my current grade is 48% overall, possibly 50% with two retakes.

    I have a final semester left, is it possible to reach up to 60% in order to get a 2:1???

    Depends how many exams/ how much of your degree you take in the final semester. It also depends how your grading works.

    Resit marks are capped at 40%, so looking unlikely I'm afraid.
