    It's a 2:1, so yes it's good.

    Is it normal to feel bad that it isn't a first? It is such a strange mark, given that it is definitely good, so I should be happy, however, it just falls short of a first!

    A 65 is a middling 2.1, neither close to a First nor close to a 2.2. Lecturers know what they are doing when they give a numerical mark. If they think an essay is close to a First you will get a 68 or 69.
