Hi,
Im studying Law at NTU, i'm not sure if it's weighted 60/40 or 50/50 but i've started stressing because this year has been a bit of a rough year and I think i've got around a mid 2:2. I was wondering, if I work my ass off, could i graduate with a 2:1?

Yes, it's perfectly possible.

Let's say your course is 50:50 and that "mid 2:2" means 55%. If you got 66% in Year 3, that'd be 60.5% overall - a 2:1.

Of course, if it's weighted 60:40 towards Year 3, then the required percentage for Year 3 would be a little lower.

Thank you, I've been stressing a lot because a graduating with a 2:2 in a law degree isn't really worth it, and im really trying to push for a 2:1 or above. I'm just going to make sure that i work extra hard next year. Thank you!!!

Apologies, but none of us have access to the formula that is used to calculate your final degree classification. Why would you expect strangers on the internet to do this work for you? Is this laziness why you're struggling to get a 2.1?

I'd probably work on my organisational skills, because my notes are literally everywhere at the moment. So when it comes to revising, I end up wasting a lot of time trying to find my notes. I'd also make sure that i study more and do more extra curricular stuff to develop my own knowledge and understanding
