    If "no official class is assigned to the overall degree issued by the University of Cambridge; instead, each Part of a Tripos is self-contained and you obtain separate results for each one: there is no averaging out for a final degree", how exactly are applicants for graduate courses (who have done their BA in Cambridge) assessed if the requirements are generally formulated as "High 2.1 honours degree (average of 67 or greater)," "At least a high 2i honours degree in Modern European Language/Culture, with other humanities degrees also considered," etc.?

    Generally it's considered that your overall classification is your third year result. So you'd need at least 67 in third year, basically.

    It's conventional to take your 3rd year result as your overall degree class.
