I am not quite sure how the grading system works so I want to ask anyone of you to come up with the average I need to reach in third year to get a first overall.
I think the ratio for 2nd and 3rd is 2:3. So that is 40% for 2nd year and 60 for 3rd, so lets assume this.
Then I have 63 overall for 2nd year, and note that my dissertation is not equally weighed as the other 4 modules, it weighs 1/3 of year 3.
How much do I need for a first? Watch

universities differ in there grading policy some do a 50/50 split some do two thirds for final year one third for first year. others do all in 3rd year.
it depends on which uni you are going to.
this is basic maths I assume that is not your strong point. (basic algebra)
ok I will break this down for you.
you have 63(0.4)+ X(0.6)=70 so
X=74.666 etc or round to 7 on end but its 0.666 recurring
so based on the figures for your scenario you would need to average 74.6666% recurring in your final year to attain the first
I dont know what scores for the other modules in your final year will be, or if your expecting to do well or bad on the dissertation. However now that I have shown you the methodology hopefully you can figure out how to work this out yourself.
