    Hi all,
    Just a quick question, I was just wondering how accurate the target grade has to be for application forms? Do I have to get it confirmed by my tutor or is it just what I think?
    So far the majority of my results have been 85%+ so I would assume a first but i dont wanna put an unrealistic target and have the bank phone up the university and for me to get in trouble so should I just put a 2:1 to be safe?
    Ive tried emailing my tutor but no reply so just need some advice?

    Thanks

    If you are likely to get a 1st (which by the grades you quoted, you are) put that down.

    If they follow up on it and you are not failing then your tutors would back whatever you say. I asked my referee and he said put a first.

    Are you in your first or your second year? if you are in your second (or 3rd) then if you got a 1st in official exams before, you are pretty fine to put a 1st as your expected grade
