    (Original post by minibooklamp)

    So I got 59.42% in second year (can't exactly round it off to 60 🙁). I had some personal issues but obviously they weren't serious enough for me to appeal. Second year counts as 40% of my degree. I was wondering if it will be possible for me to get a high 2:1 or a first by the end of third year? And if so what % would I need to get on average?

    I've read other forums about this but none of them are recent so any help would be appreciated!

    If you average 70 throughout next year in all your modules, you should get 65.9% (rounds to 66) overall. =l
    Don't know if that's what you call a high 2:1 but it puts you in the top half of the classification.

    If you get 77 next year you get 69.896 average, which rounds to 70, and hence a first.
