    I know it varies from uni to uni and depending on course but in general, what sort of grades/ percentages do you usually need to get a 2:1? I just want to know whether I'm actually on track or not because right now I have no idea.

    Hi :hello:

    You may be best asking a tutor to confirm what percentage you would need for a 2:1 classification. At our university a 60% - 69% is a 2:1 and a 70% is a first.

    Hope this helps

    2:1 usually falls between 60% and 69.9%. 70% and above is a first.

      60-69.9%, but it depends how your uni does the rounding and if there are any extra rules.

      At mine you need 59.45-69.44% overall weighted for an immediate 2:1, but if you get 57-59.44% you get put in a borderline category where you are then assessed by your median unweighted module grade. If you still end up as borderline then you are assessed by your final year grade.
