What does ‘100 best credits’ mean??? In Uni?Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
What does is mean when a Uni handbook says that your “100 best credits” from stage 2 and stage 3 will be used to calculate your final grade??
We can find your university's classification and awarding policy and help you from there.
From what you have said it seems like the University will select best 100 out of 120 credit from stage 2 and 3 - which I assume would be year 2 and year 3. This means that your worse 20 credits in each year will be discounted - which will be positive for your final classification.
It might be worth contacting your student support team in your University to make sure this is correct as it is difficult to know without knowing the details of your course / University. I hope this is helpful anyway

It’s quite common for universities to award classifications on less than all credits. You still need to PASS 120 credits but your degree classification calculation ignores your lowest 20 credit module percentage.
