    I'm terrible at calculating.
    If I get 50% in my second year what percentage do I need to get a 2:1 in my third year?
    Second year is 1/3 and third year is 2/3.
    Thank you

    65% in your third year.

    Though be aware that universities will sometimes have regulations which allow you to get high grades without meeting the normal percentage requirement, e.g. if you get a higher grade in your last year, you can get that grade, or if your median grade is higher than your average, you can get the higher grade. Though sometimes there are still minimum percentages in order to be eligible for these

    I would recommend a site like gradestracker--you can input each assignment you've already received and assignments you have left to do. You can input goal grades for years/modules, and it automatically shows you what you need to achieve those goals.

    Of course, it's just an estimation in the sense that your grades are ultimately down to the exam and degree boards--as Helloworld_95 says!
