So I am thinking about what grade I would end up with once my degree is completed.

My second year of University is worth 25% of the final degree, I have achieved only 56% overall.

My third year is worth 75% of the overall degree and I am wandering what percentage should I get in my final year to get 2:1 classification?

Can anyone do the maths, thanks in advance.

Working with decimals rather than percentages, you want an overall score of 0.6 and if your third year mark is x then your weighted average is 0.25*0.56 + 0.75*x.

We therefore solve:

0.25*0.56 + 0.75x = 0.6

Hence

x = (0.6 - 0.25*0.56)/0.75 = 0.613

Hence, you need 61.3% in your final year.

Complicated Request:

If anyone can answer this I'll be amazed and seriously grateful...

Second year counts for 30% of entire degree
Final year counts for 70%

Averaged approximately 50% second year

Question is, if I got a good first (70%+) in my dissertation which is worth 30% of my final year grade, what would I then need to average in my final exams to get a first overall?

Thanks

You need 78.5% in your final year to get a first overall (assuming you got exactly 50% in first year). Even if you got 100% on the dissertation, you would still need 69% on the exams. You are fuсked.

Assuming you need 60% for a 2:1.

(60-(0.49*25%)/0.75) = 63.7% in your third year.

Post number 2 gives you an example of how to do it yours is just slightly more complicated in that there are in that you have 3 years but it's not too different

This may sound patronising but I hope to help you to help yourself.

Isn’t a first class 70%? So you would need 70% again

It is but because the weightings of each year are different (30% and 70%) I didn't know if it would be different?
