    Hey Guys;

    Well, after going through my grades and going off COURSEWORK marks, I am 1% off a First (No joke... literally have BANG ON 69% average...), anyway, my uni says it drops your lowest 20 credits and, was wondering how exactly that works and if it will get me that 1% I need...

    Kinda need it to apply for my PGCE next year... =l

    The 1% doesn't account for the 20 credits dropped even though I was told that my uni (UWE) does this but I have no idea how it works...

    Figure out your grade average using the 220 credits with the highest marks and see what that comes up with, if you've currently 1% in it then dropping a module is quite likely to get you that 1st.
