This depends very much on how your university awards degree class, as it varies between universities.

Some take an average of all your marks, some award the most prevalent class etc

Because, as already stated, it varies slightly between universities.

If you could tell us which university you're at then I'd be able to move this to your university's subforum (if one exists). Or you can ask your university.

Assuming that a 2:2 is 50, then if is your second year overall percentage and for third year, then any two numbers that satisfy the following will work (eg 50 and 50, 20 and 60) but I'm making a lot of assumptions here (like if the uni actually merges the module marks together as a lump).

Clearly what we are trying to explain to you, because you're not understanding it. If you come here asking for help, and then receive it, there is no need to be so churlish because you didn't receive the type of answer you wanted - especially when this is as a direct result of you not providing enough information. People here will help you, and you should be a little more thankful about it to be honest.

If you don't get what's so hard to understand, why can't you figure out the answer for yourself? If it's as simple as you seem to be implying, then it's simple enough for you to understand and therefore should be simple enough to figure out yourself.
11. I think people who can't work out what mark they need to get a certain grade should just automatically fail. I mean how many threads do you see on this topic per week? Ridiculous.

That's not really fair. A lot of times it helps to know what score to target when doing past papers etc
