    Seems kinda low, but I'm still used to A-Level standards. This is for Foundation Year Biomed but it's marked with the uni system I think...

    Ahh that's a relief, thank you. Looking at it 60% seems to be a 2:1, does it matter it's borderline per se?

    Definitely not! You're only just getting used to what's expected of a university piece well done!

    Yeah it is and no although my uni tended to bump it up itf it was was 59, 69, etc

    My first ever mark on my BA was 52 and got a 2:1 and overall. I also have a PgDip at Merit now. Just need to resit something to get the full MA! Although, Ive been quite ill lately so thats on hold (had a stroke )

    Double check for Foundation Year though. but 62% wll be a good mark no matter I would think

    Generally 70% and above is a first class, 60-69% is 2:1, 50-59% is 2:2, 40-49% is a 3rd... and anything below is a fail

    Thank you! I'm reapplying to other universities so every result just has massive importance to me to actually reach offers, I might overreact :lol:

    Your uni sounds nicer than ours, haven't heard of that happening anywhere else :lol:

    Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear about that I hope you're recovering well? Best of luck for when you resit it though! :yep:

    Here's hoping, but will do thank you

    So when you do a degree you have First, 2:1, 2:2 and 3rd, which are basically just different grades. It's like the quality of your degree, First being the best and 3rd being the worst. 3rd is >40%, 2:2 is 40-60 (I think), 2:1 is 61-69% and a First is 70%+

    Edit: yeah please just listen to burrito, 3rd isn't below 40

    As a medical (science) student I can only thank you for that Am glad all was good for you though, the NHS is definitely wonderful to its patients.

    Wow, that was quick! Rare to see companies being so understanding like that these days, hopefully it goes well

    Yep, plenty of time to revise for it :yep:

    No problem All medical staff deserve respect and admiration imo!

    The NHS is wonderful and needs to be cherished. I have no problem with people who want to pay privately (as I will do when Im earning enough if work doesnt) but having a form a universal health care is a sign of a civilised country imo. I am in no way a socialist either. I just recognise, some things are slightly more important than money.

    Yeah same here! I think it being a brand new store too helped but still good of them. Another couple of places (for what i want to do longterm) have been really great too as I was meant to go and see them for casual stuff. Im an aspiring journalist so very competitive!

    Yep defo! or plan rather as need to make something. If I can just improve my existing one that would be great but Im not stressing about it yet

    Anyway, im derailing your thread, sorry!
