    Hi,

    So i'm currently a third year student panicking that i'm going to get a 2:2.

    My course is weighted 25% for second year and 75% for third year. Overall in second year I got 60%.

    My grades this year just seem to be awful no matter how hard I try, we have 5 modules; 3 are worth 24 credits, one is worth 36 credits (dissertation) and one is worth 12 credits.

    So far my marks have been 3x 62%, one 74%, a 55 and a 52.

    I am just wondering what I need to achieve this year to get a 2:1 overall?

    Thank you!!

    You don't specify which modules your grades so far are for - or what the criteria are for a 2i in your course (some courses have rules about a certain number of credits above x% in yr 3, some allow a 2i at 58% or above etc etc)

    Play about with the attached to see what different results affect your overall mark

    its not what you need...it's what you give. So basically you have to give up 2-3 hours of how ever long you usually sleep, spend a **** load of money on coffee and not waste time on anything that isn't related to uni. Good luck!
