Hi, I am in the 4th year of an MEng Mechanical Engineering programme at the University of Southampton.
I am expecting a >65% upper second class degree (2:1). I could have gone for a first, but I stupidly got serious about studying only in the second half of last year (stupid move, I feel bad for it, but now it's done).

I hear a lot of about the degree classifications, and always heard that a 2:1 is a good degree. But considering that I will graduate from the University of Southampton in Engineering, is a 2:1 a "good" degree meaning that it's just ok, or does it mean that it's a considerably good, solid degree which will open many doors in the job market for me?

You can still get awarded a first class degree provided you get an average of at least 68% and you have at least 70% in half of your modules (weighted by credits and by year).

Look HERE to see the classification algorithm used.
