    Hey Guys;

    Well, after doing the maths this year on the grade I achieved in the 2nd year of my degree, I came PAINFULLY close to a 2:1 only missing out by 1%.
    So, this year I want to get around 80% to make up for what I missed out on this year and, I actually need around 76/77% to get a First Class overall.
    So, any hints and tips would be GREATLY appreciated. =)

    Example being where to go as in, who can help me get as high a mark as I can without breaking uni regulations i.e. support for dissertations/essays and CW in general.
    Exam support would also be helpful in general too...


    You just have to work hard and make sure you adhere to regulations/what is expected of particular assignments. Read through the feedback you've received on assignments so far and any answers to past papers etc you may have access to. Practise doing exams in the time provided. With your dissertation, try and get a sample one from your supervisor (from a previous student maybe), write up as you go along and send your supervisor drafts as early as possible. Try and make friends with a PhD student or postdoc who may be happy to read drafts.
