    I'm finishing third year with a 47.181 average, that is 30% of 2nd year and 70% of 3rd year (something they do ensure the best possible mark)

    This is an honest question, do you think 47.181 would be rounded to 48 and then 50 or 48 would be the ultimate round up?

    Thanks in advance

    Seems unlikely, 47.181 rounded up to 48 (and then 50) is a bit of a jump. Saying that though it wouldn't actually surprise me if they did though, as you said, the university will do everything they (within reason) can to award you the best classification. I know two friends (who claim - I don't have definite proof) finish on an overall 57% (2nd/3rd combined) rounded up to a 2:1.
