    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 1:3:5

    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 1:3:6 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 1:3:5

    Thanks for the calculations though
