    Why? It's a slightly meaningless question.

    But given most students get a 2:1+ and boundary is usually 60% the average is probably low-mid 60s...

    Ok, a better question would be how many people get first honour and is it competitive?

    (P.S any tips of how to make friends with older students that study the same subject (EEE) and where can I find 'em?)

    Cheers

    Still not a good question because it varies significantly by university. Some might have a policy for 25% of the cohort (or whatever) to be awarded a First, and others are much less standardised. But generally it's between 20%-40%.

    (PS. What age are you, and which university are you going to?)

    Ok, so you can see the % of Firsts at Surrey:
    43% for EEE
    https://unistats.ac.uk/subjects/stud...023U/ReturnTo/

    And can you clarify what you mean by "where can I find (older students)"? Do you mean students in later years than you?

    You will primarily be with your year group going to lectures, seminars, labs. And this group is very likely to have a range of ages, from 17 to 21+, although most will be 18 or 19 (quite a few will be starting after a gap year hence a year older). You should have no problem making friends within your year group.

    Why?

    Anyway, there's things like Formula Student which have students from different year groups getting involved.

    And I'm tagging University of Surrey to see if there's an Engineering Society.

    Well, the benefits of being friends of older year groups that they can help mentor me, telling what's ahead and advices they can give me that might be useful.

    You'll be an adult, and expected to largely make your own way through university. You'll have a Tutor for pastoral questions if necessary.

    Formula Student, etc may be a good way to broaden your friendship group though.

    Thanks for tagging us in Doonesbury

    We do have several Engineering societies covering the different fields of Engineering. I think the EARS society would be best for students doing EEE - you can have a look at their webpage here.

    All the best,

    With regards to mentoring, I'm afraid I don't know the specifics for this course. I would suggest the OP get in contact with the administrator who deals with departmental enquiries for EEE, Ms Kelly Green. Her email address is [email protected].

    All the best,
    Ashley
