    is 3rd 40%?

    If so,
    (60-(40*0.2))/0.8=65%

    Yeah think a 3rd is 40-50%. I guess i would need a very high, 2:1 to get an overall low 2:1 :/

    Also...can i just clarify, is the final degree mark determined by your percentages, not the actual grades 1st, 2:1, 2:2, 3rd etc. Im just thinking if i did end up getting a high 2:2 for my dissertation, then it wouldnt make much difference if i got a high 2:2 or a low 2:1 if the final degree mark is based on percentages..bearing in mind i have been getting mainly 2:1's on all but 2 out of 10 modules so far from the 2nd year and 1st semester of the 3rd year. Cheers
