Do you think it's possible for me to get a 2:1 for first year? Watch

Basically, this year my coursework has averaged 61% altogether, so a low 2:1. I've achieved a few 65s in essays, but most of my grades have centered around the 58/62 mark. Whilst I only started revising about a month before each of my exams, I did work extremely hard for them and I think they went pretty okay.
My course is 50 exam, 50 coursework for each module. I'd need minimum 2 55s and a 58 in each exam to get a 2:1 overall. (I have three exams).

I'm just worried as if I get a 2:1 this year, I get my academic scholarship again next year, which is £2,000. This money has been a great help and I really don't want to throw it away.
Not sure what the point of this post is really, just wondering whether expecting a 2:1 is too optimistic when I've been averaging/scraping really a 2:1 in coursework. Of if anyone else has been in a similar situation to me. First year doesn't count at my Uni, but I'm still concerned because of money situations. We don't find out until mid July.

Yeah, it's likely you'll get a 2:1 overall if you've been averaging a 2:1. Not really sure what else you want us to say. Did you feel your exams went well? I wouldn't worry about it now if I were you anyway, you can't do anything about it so no point in worrying.
