    Unfortunately I failed a course in my third year, which drag my average mark below 60...anyone know if average mark of 58 or 59 could be awarded a 2.1 degree at Uni of Edinburgh? Don't wanna stay with a 2.2 degree for my whole life.

    It's business school btw.
    Thx.

    It could do due to a process called profiling. I'm unsure how it works though so have a look at the university policy.

    I've checked the policy and it says there actually is a two-percent borderline. But don't know if that would be a certain result or not. Heard from the econ school that normally student with average 67 or so would be honoured a first class deree. Thanks for reminding!

    It's usually that you have to average, for example, 68% across a certain number of modules, which, obviously you would, then you'd be eligible for a first.

    No worries

    It's usually possible for borderline cases to get classed as the grade above, but only if at least 60 credits in the final year are of the grade. E.g. a grade of 58 could be an upper second class degree but only if you got 60 credits or more at a 2:1.
