Sorry to necro the thread but I received about a 55-56 average in 2nd year, my course is 25% second year, 75% third year. Is it still possible for me to get a 2:1 overall?

yeah for sure. you would need to get a 62% in third year to get a 2:1 overall which isnt too hard

You'll need to average about 62% in your final year for a 2.1, or 76% for a first.

Almost certainly - if you manage to get about 62% or more in your 3rd year, then due to the 3rd year being worth a lot more it is almost certainly possible to get a 2.1 - assuming that a 2.1 is equivalent to 60% (like most universities).

Yeah I just actually worked out via a calculator it was 61.7% or something like that - so my guess of 62 was really close!

Thanks guys, that makes me feel better. I am a hardworking student; it's just the assignments let me down, need to get round them! In order to taste success you have to hit lows in your life, I guess.

I know someone who barely scraped 40% in their second year and still ended up with a 2.1. If you put in the work you can do it.

you should be damn sorry. I read half way down the page before I realised it was 2011. the op could be fairy dust for all we know.

if the thread is so old, just make a new one. jeez louis.

Why did you bump a year old thread?!

Alright, the thread has been bumped a few times but if it's more than 6 months old, unless there's a good reason not to, create a new thread instead.

Hi I'm in the same boat I've just got my results for second year and got a High 2.2 (58.5) I'm assuming that I can work hard for a 2.1 but how many 2.1 grades do I need for the majority of the modules? My course and uni is 20% of my second year and 80% of my third year...?

Just noticed this is an ancient thread, with multiple bumpings along the way. Am reporting for thread close as it's too old.

I think it depends on your university and the courses.

Do you know what percentages their 2nd year and 3rd year accounted for

Yes for sure. I went into final year with with a borderline first class and needed a strong first to graduate with a 2.1 I documented my story and how i did this in my tsr thread:
http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...4#post43849614

The key point is yes it is possible and if its a first you really want then go for it!
