Anyone know how the law degree is calculated. I was told it was roughly 50% from both final years. Would this mean that say hypothetically, i complete 12 modules over 2 years and in half of them i achieve a 2:1 but in the others i achieve a 2:2 would i be awarded the 2:1.
Sorry but my maths is poor.

Depends on how your uni weight the modules. For example, in year 2 if you do four modules, and year 3 you do six, they'd be weighted 40/60. So 40% of the marks would come from year 2 and 60% from year 3. Universities take an overall average to calculate your final grade, so if your percentage overall is 64% from all modules, you'll get a 2:1 (in some universities, if your overall percentage is 65% or over, and you've also got 5 of the class above (ie five first class results from five modules) then they'll award you a first.
You will almost certainly find the information on how your university award marks for the degree classification in your student handbook.
