    I've just been confirmed that in my degree, without my final module grade which I've not received yet I have got 69.6 percent.
    What, if I don't get higher in the last grade am I likely to get. Will I be rounded to a first?
    I've been told it may happen as Northumbria round up final degrees but I'm not sure.
    Has this happened to anyone and what happened in the end?

    Likely. I think they will but check the rules which should be online or available from the department.

    It states on the handbook that borderline grades (67/68/69) need to achieve firsts in half of the graded credits (3/6 modules). I only have a first in two, which is worrying. I'm hoping however due to my boundary grade being higher this will be discounted. Thanks for getting back to me quick 😊
