I got a 2:1 but my overall percentage is 59?

My results came out recently and it says that I got a 2:1, which confuses me because it says 59%, is there something I could be missing? Maybe they don't show decimals, so maybe it's actually 59.9% and they rounded it up? I'm not sure, but I'm not going to email them in case they decide to fix it if it IS a mistake.

59 is more than likely to be included in your Uni’s borderline policy. This means if you’re very close to reaching the next classification up, the Uni will round your average up and award you the higher classification.

Thank you for the quick response. I was worried that there might have been a mistake and that they would revoke the 2:1, but I guess it is possible that they just rounded it up.

Could be a couple of things:
-Sometimes if your close (within 1 or 2 percent) and you have have 60+ credits at the higher classification they essentially give you the higher classification. (aka borderline case)

-Corona virus zero detriment policy

-you got 59.5% and the website reports the integer and classification is rounded.

Either way it doesn't matter, congrats on your 2.1!

Thank you so much! It could be any of those things and you're right, it doesn't matter in the end, thank you!
