I have completed 8.66667% of my degree so far, and my marks have averaged about 61.5.
I have had some adverse circumstances affecting me of late. My most recent essay received a mark of 65, whereas my first ones (when things were really bad) received a 54 and a 61.
If things continue to get better and my marks increase, can I still get a first overall, despite my average being a little less for the first part of my degree?
(In my first year, when I had less severe circumstances to contend with, all of my essays averaged about a 67-68).
