    I have received all the grades for all my subjects except for one.
    I have calculated that I will most likely get a 69, which is almost a 1:i.

    I need to have a 67 in order to have a 1:i overall.

    However, if I get a 66, 65 or a 64, it would mean I would get a final average of 69.99, 69.89 or a 69.79...

    Do universities usually round up the results if it is very near?

    I would not forgive myself, if I miss a 1st for less than 0.5%...

    Policy on borderline classificationsThe Assessment Board might award the higher degree classification when the aggregate result falls0.5 percentage points below the percentage boundaries of the class above (i.e. between 69.5 and69.9; 59.5 and 59.9 and 49.5 and 49.9). This is not applicable to the pass/fail boundary, or to interimawards.
    I found this on my university website...Never mind...

    I am still worried about the wording, because they might not award it :/

    I knew people who got rounded up when they were 2% below.

    Look at your university's handbook, it should say. E.g. at my uni if you get 69.5 it's a definite first and then there's a bunch of other rules where it can be rounded up.
