    HI , I have a final law exam coming up which had been deferred . I need 78 in this exam to get a 2.1 overall. The highest mark awarded this year was 75 for the module. Is it doable ? Normally I get in the 57-64 range but due to a very bad dissertation I need to average top first now but I'm prepared to give it my all and try my very best . Has anyone got such a mark ? I need motivation . Thanks for any replies

    Obviously it's doable; it's less doable if you sit on here asking pointless questions like is it possible to get 78 out of 100. Just do the work; what else do you expect anyone to say on here?

    You can do anything if you put your mind to it. I also find markers are a bit more lenient marking exams than essays so give it your all!

    I would also say manage your expectations. The institution I went to didn't usually award higher than about 74/75%. With this in mind I have friends who didn't get 2:1s and who have great jobs and did very well.

    Highest I received in a law exam is 76.

    78 is tough but achievable. Looking to get above 80 is asking for trouble

    More relevant: have you achieved greater than 78% in any of your other exams? If not, you are likely to be an underdog. Good luck!

    I got a first and won several academic prizes and scholarships. The highest mark I ever got (for which I won the subject prize that year) was a 78, in land law. Unless you also have that kind of record I think it's pretty unlikely you'll pull off a 78, sorry!

    Depends what uni you go to. I went to a crap uni and had quite a few marks in the 80s. Not all unis mark to the same standard.

    Well you haven't done it yet and this means that the odds are against you, but there's always a first time.

    It's one module and by the looks of it it's really important for you so do your very best and you might get the result you need!!! Presumably the exams are in late August, so there's still plenty of time for you to prepare.

    Good luck and believe that you can do it!
