    Hi,
    quick question! I'm in my final year and had a bit of a rough year which has impacted in my essays. First two years I've scraped a 2:1 this year been getting thirds

    does this mean my overall mark will be pulled down to a third degree classification!?

    It depends on the weighting each year your course has. So first year might be 10% weight second year 20% and final 70%. Final year is most likely the most important check your university website.

    It depends on the exact marks, so we can't say for sure.

    But lets say you averaged 60% (the minimum 2:1) in the first two years to be conservative.

    With a 10-30-60 split, in order to be pulled down to a third, you'd need 43.3% in the final year.

    So you'd have to get a low third in the final year.
