    I'm studying a degree in Music and I have just finished my 3rd year with an overall of 57.9 and 120 credits.

    3rd year counts towards 30% of my overall degree and 4th year is 70%

    Do I stand a good chance of getting a 2:1 next year?

    Are you sure about that weighting? 4 year courses are generally 2/3/3.

    As for your question you need 60% to get a 2:1
    Currently you have
    57.9*0.3=17.37

/Rightarrow 60-17.37=42.63

/Rightarrow 42.63/0.7 =60.9

    Therefore if you get 60.9% this year you will get a 2:1
    75.2% will get you a first.
