Hi,
Haven’t done as well this year as I did in first year so if I average a 2:2 in 2nd year (worth 30%)
What grades would I need in 3rd year to average a 2:1 or first overall???

A 2:2 is a 10 mark grade band. If you want people to do the maths for you it would be best to say what mark you expect to get for 2nd year.

It's hard to tell without an exact average. A 2:2 can be anywhere from 50-59 percent, and so the average you'd need could differ quite dramatically.

At worst case scenario if you scored literally 50% you'd need at least 65% in final year to get a 2.1 at the lowest.

Yep as MidgetFever said check your policies. For my university if you get 50% of your modules in the upper band in your case 2,1. Your degree gets rounded up if based on the formula your final score reaches 58.01%.

Ah okay thank you!
I have currently got 58 but I’m still awaiting marks for 2 more assessments which could bring that average grade up or down

Thank you!
I’m on 58% but awaiting marks for 2 more assessments which could affect this,
Say I got 58-60 in second year, what would I need in 3rd, for a high 2:1//first overall?

You should be able to work this out yourself if you want to experiment with the values between 58-60.

Just put your years weight in the percentage part and what you believe your average for this year is, then you should be able to figure out your aim for next year.
