Different universities (and sometimes different courses) calculate the overall degree classification in different ways. So without knowing what your cousin is studying where, we'd just be guessing.

If we assume that the weightings across the three years are 0 40 60 (which is quite common), then your cousin will have an overall percentage of 56.3%, which is a 2:2.

The actual percentage might be quite different if different weightings apply.
