My final uni grade came back as a 2:2. When I’ve checked, it’s been graded at 59.85% is there any way I can get it rounded up. I’ve already asked student services but they’ve not responded

Have you already been given your classification?
Is that your final degree grade?

What university are you at?

From Oxford Brookes page:

“NB: The average mark is truncated and not automatically rounded up, e.g. 59.6 is not automatically rounded up to 60 and stays at a lower second class honours.
A borderline classification can be upgraded if it meets the following requirements:

Students with 68% or above with 4 out of the last 8 acceptable module credits in the higher class of degree will normally receive a first.
Students with 59% or above with 4 out of the last 8 acceptable module credits in the higher class of degree will normally receive an upper second class honours.”

Have you met the second requirement? (I suspect not as these are generally done and calculated before final classifications are given out)

Hello Reb334,

Hope you are doing well!

I would recommend getting in touch with your Academic Advisor regarding this if you have not already, they should be able to provide you with a bit more clarification regarding this matter.

I hope this helps!

All the best,

Shaf

The best thing to do is to speak to your lecturers directly. Oxford Brookes is filled with corruption with a lot of lecturers disagreeing with the system they work within.

I literally approached one after class and he changed my grade from a 63 to a 68. I know it's an absolute joke but that is Oxford Brookes. Enjoy paying off that massive debt to them lol
