Had living difficulties due to covid and unfortunately graduated second year with a 3rd (49%) I really want a 2:1 or first. My first yesr I graduated with a high 2:1. just due to a terrible year. Has anyone ever had a 3rd and then graduated to a 1st before ? Or know anyone that has ?

Hi! Anonbabe2

I'm sorry to hear this I've personally not heard of this, but it may be possible. I would check your university policy surrounding this. Some universities may only count your 3rd-year grades or combine your second and third year by discounting your worst modules from each year, instead of doing 50/50 for calculating your final grade. so I would ask about this. However, I do know a few people that retook their second year, as this worked better for them.

I hope this helps!
Best wishes

need to know the weighting between years 2 and 3.

40% weighting on year 2 results and 60% weighting on year 3 results means you will need to get 67% on average across all year 3 modules

Then you will need an average of 81.6% in third year to pull it up to a first. And an average of 66.4% in third year to pull it up to a 2:1 barring any additional caveats.
