Your question makes no sense. Degree classification is about your marks achieved, not just credits amassed. Look up your degree regulations.

You would need 120 credits each year with at least an average of 40% and above and no more then one or maximum two fails (non core) to get an honours degree at my uni.

You would need two semester averages above 60% in each semester to get a 2:1

Or potentially with infinite spreads:

61 + 59 ÷ 2 = 59.5 which could round to 60 at most unis.

But that then depends on how many credits you have in each semester, I doubt your using the extremely tough 10 credit system we still use.

Its a pain

I have 4 exams a semester
And 4 coursework modules over the year lol. A tough load.

No, it doesn't make sense. Degree classification is based on your marks per module, not the number of module credits you have passed. You could pass 120 credits in second year and 120 credits in third year at an average mark of 40-49 and get a third. Alternatively, you could pass those same modules at an average of 60+ and get a 2.1.
