I put in the effort through the year, but in the end I wasn't as efficient as I hoped. I feel like in the end my mood/mental health was too much of a distraction, and the whole settling into uni/adapting took a while.

I am certain that next year I will be in a much better position, this year I spent a lot of energy hating myself/feeling like a failure but the past month I have been good.

So far I have gotten 52 in 1 essay (40% of a 20credit module), 60 in 1 module (20credits), 65 in 40% of a module (20credits), 66 and 61 (both 10 credit modules). I have 1 10credit module that I might fail.

I feel like I am still at a stage in my revision where I am note taking/learning new things, it feels really late and overwhelming.

I generally feel like I might end up getting a 2:3 or 2:2 or 2:1. It all feels quite overwhelming and uncertain, and I just want to get it all out of the way.

A 2:3 isn't a thing- you're thinking of a third.

There is a big difference between a 2.1 and a third. A 2.1 is considered a "good" degree classification, and will be fine for pretty much anything. A third won't.

For internships, some will ask for your current grades, but some might not, so if this year doesn't go so well, you should still be able to find some options.
