    Hi, I'm studying Combined Arts at Durham (soon to be Liberal Arts) and I've always thought that 2nd year counted 50% of my final degree and that 3rd year would then be 50% as well. That's what I've just generally heard, but reading though the 'CORE REGULATIONS FOR UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMMES' I read:

    'For degrees classified on the performance of students in respect of 12 single
    modules or equivalent (to the value of 240 credits), performance on modules studied in the second and third years shall be differentially weighted 2:3.'

    So does 2nd year weigh less then? Would really be grateful for any help

    Second year weighs 40%, third year 60%.
