Can I get a 2.2Watch

Your final grade depends on the weight of the credits and your grade in them.
If module A is 20% of yr2 credit and you got 70%
and module B is 20% of yr 2 credit and you got 58%
and module C is 30% of yr 2 credit and you got 66%
and module D is 30% of your yr 3 credit and you got 64%
then (0.2x0.7)+(0.2x0.58)+(0.3x0.66)+(0.3x0.64)=0.14+0.116+0.198+0.192 = 0.646 or 64.6% or (in majority of unis) 2:1
that means your year 2 average is 64.6%, then you'd have to weigh that by how much year 2 is worth to overall grade. in my university, year 2 is only worth 40%, so in reality if I got 64.6% in my example then I have only 'guaranteed' a percentage of at least 26% ... meaning that even though I got a middling 2:1 in year two, I still have the 'opportunity' of not even getting a 3rd on graduation.
check your course specifications to see the weights.
I was wondering if its possible to get a 2.2 overall degree if I got a 2.1 in second year. I have heard people say that as long as you get a 2.1 in second year and your dissertation you get a 2.1 overall grade even if the rest of your course marks are 3rd and 2.2s, is this true?
