    I more specifically got 56.58% in second year and that has a 40% weighting on my final grade for the whole degree. My third year is worth 60%. I suck at exams as well like really bad so I'm heavily relying on doing well in essays but I'm wondering how I work out what kind of percentage I'll need to get in my third year to achieve an overall 2:1

    I got an average of 62.28%. May be slightly less if they round up and you can drop subjects.

    Don't forget that most unis have methods of upgrading those who get close to the class above.

    These are often along the lines of 'Candidates within x% of the higher classification will be upgraded if they achieve y credits at the higher level in the third year.'

    Different unis have different policies so you need to consult your degree regulations.
