    Absolutely, if you got

    50% - mid 2.1 in 2nd year

    Then to get a first overall you would need a high/mid 1st in the 3rd year.

    Good luck

    The tricky bit is that getting any sort of 1st requires a lot of effort. It doesn't really make a difference if you get 62 or 66%, but the difference between 71% and 74% is like moon and Earth.

    You'd need to work really hard to get these grades OP. If you are writing a dissertation, try to do exceptionally well in it.
