I needed some advice and consolation about my uni grades. Due to some un-diagnosed health issues I did pretty bad in second year and averaged a mid 2:2. I'm planning on doing postagrad after uni so obviously that proved to be a problem. My health is now under check and I'm taking medications to help with it. I've worked hard in third year and have gotten my semester 1 results. I've gotten a 2:1 in one module and a first in the other. If I continue working hard and get similar grades in semester 2 and in my disso, will I be able to get a 2:1 overall?
Just wanted to add my second year counts for 1/3 and third year counts for 2/3 of my grade.
Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

Yes, please watch this video of Shirley.
A straight A* student, 100% on 6 GCSE exams who went to Cambridge, got a third in first year, third is second year and a 2:1 overall in third year.
She studied Chemistry.
She is very inspirational. Watch the video for inspiration.

Lets say you got the lowest 2:2 (50%) you'd need to average 65% in your third (see https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?...2B2%2F3*x%3D60)
If you got the highest 2:2 (59%) then you'd only need to average 60.5% (see https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?...2B2%2F3*x%3D60 )
its definately doable then!Last edited by iammichealjackson; 11-02-2018 at 18:48.
