    Hi people.
    I would really appreciate it if someone would be kind enough to help me calculate what I need to achieve a first and 2:1 class on my degree overall.

    My University is structured like this:
    First year does not count towards the degree provided you pass to progress to the second year.

    Second year counts for either 20% or 25% (I'll explain lower*)

    Final year counts for either 80% or 75%
    (*Recently they have changed the classification system. So until 2019 they are giving students whatever algorithm awards them the best mark, the old 25:75 or the new 20:80 until May 2019, where the new 20:80 will be used for everyone)

    My second year modules I achieved:
    58% (30 credits)
    60% (30 credits)
    81% (15 credits)
    81% (15 credits)
    75% (30 credits)

    My final year modules I have:
    ??% (60 credit project)
    ??% (15 credit course)
    ??% (15 credit course)
    ??% (15 credit course)
    ??% (15 credit course)

    Thank you.

    25:75 system: You'd need 57.17% average for a 2.1 and 70.5% average for a 1st
    20:80 system: YOu'd need 57.88% average for a 2.1 and 70.38% average for a 1st

    Thanks for your help.
    Do you think it would be possible to help calculate what I would need on those final year modules to achieve a first?

    The %s you'd mean? Well you'd need the overall percentage for the 3rd year to be what I listed but what you can get might vary. You might, for example do better in one module but worse in another. Because there's 5 modules left it's hard to narrow down what you'd need specifically.

    Hey, yeah I mean the %s.
    So if I use the site: http://unigradecalc.com/ and then input 5 different grades, one with 50%, four others with 12.5% I can then work out the combinations I'd need to achieve a first or a 2:1.
