Could someone please tell me if I have achieved a 2:1 in my history degree at Portsmouth University, using the preponderance method;

The minimum classification in which more than 50% of the combined relevant credits at Level 5 and level 6 were attained –after discounting the marks in the lowest 20 credits at each level

¨So, eg, if you have 120 credits at 70 or above, you get a First¨Or, eg, if your best 120 credits are 60 or above you get a 2.1 here are my grades so far (all 20 credits apart from the dissertation which is 40);

EMPIRES AND IDENTITIES 1750-1914: 61
HISTORY WORKPLACE EXPERIENCE:56
