Second year average: 62. Can I still get a first class degree?Watch this thread

I am studying law at Bristol University. I finished the first year with a 54 average (which doesn't count) and the second year with a 62. The second year counts for 40% of my overall grade and the third year for 60%. With my current average I need around 75 in my final year for a first class degree. Is this impossible to achieve?
It is going to be difficult, however I do believe it is possible and you may need to focus on getting the additional help to push yourself pass a 2:1 to a first. I do not know anything about law,.but could you do more external reading, add in cases/relevant information from areas outside your syllabus as this will show that you are demonstrating more evaluation skills, etc..
it requires alot of work, of course. like treating the textbook as a starting point for further research. but it is one thing to say it, another to do it, hence why a fraction of law degrees are firsts.
if you are academically able, put the hours in, and perfect exam technique then you could get 75 on every module.
