Lol thanks
6. Assuming your second year was weighted 40% and your final year will be worth 60%, you're going to need to average 63.33% in third year to get a 2.1 overall

20%
Assuming it's 20% for both 2nd and 3rd year each, and you got 55 and 45, then you would need 66.7%+ to get a 2:1 overall. This comes from (0.2 * 55) + (0.2 * 45) + (4th year * 0.6) > 60, so 4th year * 0.6 > 40.
8. Or am I wrong about that, can you please break down what each year of your degree is worth so I can work it out?

Thanks, got 47.6 in 3rd
Then you need to average exactly 66% in final year to get a 2.1

It'll take some serious work but (see above poster) it can be done.
12. You're averaging 51% at the moment. You'll need an average of 66% in your final year to achieve a 2.1
