    Hi Guys,

    Ive been on Unigrade calc and loads of other websites but still can't figure out how to work it out! I really ficked up in my second year and i'm trying desperately to work out what I need to get a 1st or a 2:1.

    At Bradford Uni the following applies;

    1st year worth nothing
    2nd year worth 20%
    3rd year worth 80%

    We have to study 120 credits in a year and the worst 20 credits are dropped from the calculation of the degree classification calculator. So we only really have 100 credits that count.

    The Management accounting module I scored 35% will be dropped as I got a compensated pass.

    This is 2nd Years Results.....

    Thanks in advance!

    Your second year has given you 10.88% towards your final degree classification.

    Assuming you need 70% overall for a first (my uni doesn't use percentages, so I'm going by the standard ones), you would need an average of 73.9% in your third year to get a first. To get a 2.1 (assuming it is 60%) you would need an average of 61.4% in your third year.

    Your average for second year is 54.4% (not including your 20 management accounting credits that don't count), so you have quite a bit of work to do in order to pull up your grades and get a 2.1 or a first.

    Its 58% to get a 2:1 and 68% to get a first. How does this change the figures?

    See the attached - change the red value in column K to different amounts to see what you need in 3rd year.
