Hey I tried calculating what the lowest mark I'd need to get a 2:1 in my overall degree. 2nd year is 20 percent and 3rd is 80 percent weighting. I have 62% for second year.
So far I have 69 (20creds) and 71(20creds) my dissertation is 60 credits. By my calculations I will only need a 51 in my dissertation to get an overall 2:1 when all the marks are calculated together. Is this correct??

If this is the same calculation that I helped you with then you were close, the answer is 52.5
