Basically I got a 2.2 overall in my second year (57%)
The weighting for second year - 40%
The weighting for third year - 60%

To get a 2.1 overall what would I need to average in my final year? and what about a first?

I study economics and go to the university of Kent if that helps

Thanks

If I've worked this out correctly, you need 62% in your final year to get a 60% overall. To get a first, you need a 79% in final year.

Okay thank you! So I should aim for 65% because I don't wanna risk it to just scrape a 2:1, and I don't think getting a 1st is doable ahah, but thank you

Why aim for 65? Why not aim for as high as you can go?

You also need to check Kent's degree regulations as there will be methods to upgrade students who are close to the classification above.

Most unis have a couple of methods of deciding degree classification. The first is the simple numeric: 60 = 2.1, 70 = First etc.

However, there is often a secondary method applied to 'near misses'. This is often along the lines of 'Students within x% of the higher classification will be upgraded if they have achieved y number of credits at the higher level'. You need to check your degree regulations for the details.
