# Calculating third year mark watch talk to the uni Official Rep

1. Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me calculate what overall mark/s I would need in my final year to achieve a 2:1 and a first.

My degree is weighted 15

First year mark: 64
Second year mark: 66.63

Appreciate any help, thanks!

What is a 2.1 and a 1st?
If its 60 and 70

Then for a 2.1 you would need 55.22
For a 1st you would need 73.22.

Here's the working out:

Weighted 1: 3:5

So first year is 1/9 %
Second year is 3/9 %
Third year is 5/9 %

For 60 overall
(1/9 * 64) + (3/9 * 66.63) + (5/9 * 55.22) ~ 60

For 70 overall
(1/9 * 64) + (3/9 * 66.63) + (5/9 * 73.22) ~ 70

Are you sure it isn't 16 because that would make for much more sensible percentages?

If that's the case then for a:

2.1 you need 56.05
1st you need 72.72

Thank you! It's similar to the way I calculated it. Guess I need a 70 + in all of my modules. :/

It certainly would but it's weighted 15

Thanks for the calculations though
