    Hi everyone,

    Someone on another thread advised me to post on a maths forum as you lot may be able to help me a bit more, I am rubbish at maths and can't work this out, even after looking for help on google etc.

    I had a bit of a crap year last year and had to delay some of my exams, some of which I didn't pass. It's a bit of a sore point for me as I was on to a 1st or at least a 2:1.

    Basically, I am taking 2 exams capped at 40% and one which isn't capped and its my first attempt, I am trying to work out degree classification but I am struggling.

    My second year was worth 25% in which I got 64.56% (180 credits) and up to now for my final year 75% I have got 42.17% (60 credits).

    Each exam is worth 20 credits. I only got 180 credits in 2nd year because I got extra due to my placement. This year it will total 120 credits after I have finished the remaining exams.


    Considering that I can only get 40% out of the 2/3 exams, what would I need to achieve from the 3rd exam (out of 100%) to at least try and achieve a 2:2 as my final degree classification.

    Thanks for any help thank anybody can give me, I am really desperate here to try and claw back anything I can.

    Are the three that you're unsure about count towards your 2nd year or your 3rd year?
    Are the current results involving the modules that you're retaking? (I'm assuming you're retaking them since they're capped at 40%)

    Would be best if you'd include all the 2nd year and 3rd year grades, indicating which you are taking this year.
