    So I've basically ****ed up again but need some help figuring out what I need to get a 2:1...

    3rd year counts for 1/3 of my degree: I got 42, 44, 52 and 58% (all 20 credits each)
    4th year counts for 2/3 of my degree: So far I got 47.2% (worth 50% of a 20-credit course), 52% and 58% (20 credits each).
    I still have 2 exams to do this semester (one of them counts for the other 50% of my 20 credit course and the other counts for 10 credits) then I have a 10 credit project proposal and 40 credit dissertation.
    What grades do I need to scrape a 2:1 (so literally just get that 60%?) Thanks in advance!

    you will need to get about 74% average in your remaining work to get 60% overall However it could be slightly slower as they may (depending on department etc) give you a 2:1 if you are slightly below 60%

    You only seem to have done 80 credits in 3rd year is there a reason for this ?

    Hope that helps

    Thanks so much for your reply. So I made a mistake! I missed out another exam which I got 48% for and that was worth 20 credits. The exam for which I got 58% (mentioned in my question) was actually worth 40 credits, not 20. (Both results from third year which adds up to 120 credits). Does that change the average grade I need to get over the rest of this semester to get a 2:1? Thank you so much for your help!! I'm so rubbish at maths.
