# Turning a 2:2 into a 1st in final year? Possible? Watch

Announcements
1. If you have a high 2:2 (58-59%) and you are aiming for a first.. is this possible or is it highly likely that with a lot of hard work you will get a 2:1..

At my uni second year represents 1/3 and final year 2/3

How do you work it out? or would you need to average 80% +

if not.. should I smack final year with high 2:1's and first in my modules and get a 2:1..

is a first class over-rated? ..
2. If I've done the maths right, even with most of the weight on final year you'd need to be consistently hitting 90%+ in exams from final year - so while it is technically possible, it would require an incredible effort. You're better off working to bump yourself up to a 2:i.

Yeah I will work towards a high 2:1 :-) I just want to graduate with a 2:1 or higher. It is just sad that getting a d=first is our of reach. But surely a a 2:1 isn't right?

2:i is definitely achievable that close to the boundary with most of the weight on final year, it's just a first that is slightly unrealistic.
