# How well do I have to do in my final semester? watch

1. My average in my first semester of my third year is 68%. My second year average was 52%.

33% of my second year and 67% of my third year will account for my final degree outcome. How will I need to do in my final semester in order to:-

a) get a second class upper
b) get a first

ps. dont make fun of me because i know im not the best. thanks for the help!

If my math is correct, over 60% for a 2.1, over 90% for a first.

Here's how to work it out:

33% x second year = 0.3333 x 52 = 17.3333

If your third year is 67, each semester is 33,
33% x first semester = 0.3333 x 68 = 22.6667

Add them up 17.3333 + 22.6667 = 40%

So if you got 0% on the last semester, you'd get 40%

Your final mark would be 40 plus (0.3333 x semester 2 average) - you can work it out with your running average if you like, but:

40 + (0.3333 x 91) = 70.1 (first)

40 + (0.3333 x 61) = 60.3 (2:1)

40 + (0.3333 x 31) = 50.3 (2:2)

Of course, at the end of the day your grade is down to module exam and classification boards. But this saves you recalculating constantly!
