    Hi,

    Got an average of 59.4/90 overall, and need a 60/90 for a 2.1. I am obviously well within the 'discrepancy boundary' according the the marking/grading guidelines handbook but it only states those in that boundary will be considered, I take it there is no guarantees?

    Is it likely that Leeds Uni will bump my mark up or am I going to have to start appealing? Its really crucial I get a 2.1 :/

    I doubt they will let you off just like that?

    I am sure you will have to appeal or lump the grade you have :s surely? otherwise everyone would be asking for 'just a few marks'

    Well good luck obviously, but ultimately grade boundaries are there for a reason. If you have that score then hopefully it is because that is the score you merited. There should be no element of "ooh he's so close, let's bump him up..."
