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

    Assuming that first year counts for nothing, final year counts for 60%, and there are no other regulations etc about degree classifications at your university, you'd need to average above 77.053% in third year to get a first overall.

    Not sure what you identify as a high 2.1, do you mean 65%?

    For the purpose of calculation, if you are looking to get say mark X overall you would need to solve:

    T =(X - (59.42 *0.4)) / 0.6 where T is what you need in third year

    As said earlier, to get 70% you need 77% overall, and in order to get 65%+ you need at least 68.72%.

    Just so you know, if you get like 69 - 69.5% you will usually get rounded up to a first, you need about 75-76% in third year.
