it depends on the university, but an italian GPA of 25/30 or a final score of 102/110 should be the equivalent of a 2:1

The system is as follows -
1st (A) - 70%+
2:1 (B) - 60-69%
2:2 (C) - 50-59%
3rd (D). - 40-49%

Most places expect at least a 2:1 when applying for post-grad or jobs. In what context have you been asked for a 2:1?

a 2:1 is an British degree classification. we have five:

1st class honours (the top classification)
Upper Second Class honours (generally referred to as a '2:1')
Lower second class honours (generally referred to as a '2:2')
Third class honours
Pass

Most Universities require that you get at least a 2:1 in order to go onto graduate study (hence the requirement of a 2:1). If you got 110/110 and 29.3/30 GPA, I would suggest that translates as at least a 2:1, but more likely a 1st. I don't think you've got anything to worry about.

Haha. If those are your scores, then you've obviously made the requirement.

It doesn't work like that for students from outside the UK. 60% is much harder to achieve in the British curriculum than in many other countries.

OP it's best that you contact the universities yourself via e-mail or phone.
