I'm rubbish with maths - and i'm half way through the second year of my Psychology degree. So far for semester 1 I've got around 55% average - a 2:2. If I got a 2:2 with 55% average for my entire second year, what would I need to get overall in 3rd year to get a first? My degree weightings are 25% for second year and 75% for third. I can't work it out!

Pretty sure you'd need 75% to get a 1st if you get 55 this year
70 = (0.25x55) + (0.75x A)
A x 0.75 = 70 - 13.75
A = 75
I'm tired so I'm ready to be corrected :P

I agree with JumpingJonny, if you average 75% in year 3 you should get a 1st overall.

Take how far you are from 70% this year, divide it by three, and that's how much more than 70% you need in year three.
(Which gives 75% as above).
