    I figured out that my degree percentage was 68.4% giving my a 2.1.
    How far away was i from getting a 1st?
    Is there any possible way of getting it improved as the bursaries for a 1st are a lot better than for a 2.1 when going into further education

    1.6% which could mean anything in terms of marks across multiple modules (taking into consideration they may have different weighting)

    It depends on your university's specific policies, but typically 1.6%.

    hey thanks, would it be worth attempting a remark of the degree or is 1.6% too much for it to be even possible for the grade to be changed?

    As I said, 1.6% could mean anything in terms of marks, it doesn't translate to anything because your final % is a calculation across all 3 years (or 2 in some cases) of your degree. From my own degree, 1.6% is quite a handful of marks anyway and you need to find out from your course officer if it's possible to get a remark.

    If you wanted the better bursary then you should have put the work in for a first when you realised you were on track for a 2:1, not try to get remarked because you're not happy with getting a lower bursary. 68.4% is great, but it's not close enough to a first to get remarked unless you have reason to believe you have been significantly under-marked.

    it's very unlikely you'll find 1.6% from remarks. It may not sound like a lot but across a whole degree, you'd need most of your marks to be wrong to gain all that back.
