What overall marks does the average student get in first year? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I messed up my first year by handing in my assignments within a week late of the deadline which means that they will all be capped at 40%. I still receive my original grade which are all between 62-68%.
    I'm very frustrated with myself and have promised myself to work harder in2nd year. I'm very disappointed with myself but I know I deserve it for handing in everything late. I might pass first year with either a 3rd or if I'm lucky a 2.2.

    How bad is this?
    Will I ever get a job?

    What did you average with in first year?

    p.s sorry for all the questions, I'm panicking.

    does your first year count? and if so, how much?

    I would say the 'average' was a 2.1 somewhere, as it remained for the rest of the degree, lots of people said 'first year doesn't count so I don't care' but I think in practice they did do some work, even if it was often last minute...

    I got a first in first year

    your employer wont see a year by year break down so as long as you bring your average up (assuming your first year counts at all which many don't) then it won't matter
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
