I know different universities have a way of calculating your overall degree mark but I was wondering-for the people who have graduated-how your final mark was assessed? Basically I completly messed up in my second year and I haven't had the best of grades, a lot of them were in the 40-50% range and I need to work my butt off in the third year and I am aiming for at least 70% for my three placements and a first for my dissertation - what are the chances of me getting an overall 2:1 if I put it in 110% for my final year, I'm willing to work day and night aslong as I get a really good mark at the end of this!

It'd depend on the weighting between the years. George's is two thirds on the third year and one third on the second. If yours is like that then I guess you stand a decent chance at least in theory.
If you averaged 45% in second year, you're 15% under what you need for a low 2:1 (assuming 2:1 is 60%). You need to make that up in third year but if it's weighted twice as highly you need to score 7.5% over in the third year - which would be 67%. Your uni might well do it differently though.
Big question is though, how are you going to improve your marks by 20% plus on each assignment?

Well, I just got an e-mail back from one of my tutors informing me how it is classified:
"the average mark of 90 credits worth of modules (equivalent to 6 single modules) with the highest marks at level 3 or on the average mark of 225 credits worth of modules (equivalent to 15 single modules) with the highest mark at level 2 and above. Whichever comes out the highest is what your classification will be."
I think I can improve my marks if I try really hard, although first year grades do not count - I was really motivated and achieved 90% in all my modules so if i put my mind into I know I can do really well iny my 3rd year.
