If you achieved the maximum mark for a third of 49% you would need to average 75.6% in final year to get an overall mark of 70%. If you achieved via minimum third of 40% then you would need 81%.

In practice you would probably need a little less because most unis have methods of upgrading near misses eg those who average 68-69% overall. These methods usually involve higher marks in third year.

That's the maths. The key questions are why did you get/getting a third and why do you think you can improve so much?
