# will i get a 2:1?

hi! so i’m not actually sure if this post is allowed (apologies if not!) but i was wondering if somebody would be able to help to put my mind at ease a little bit.

i’m currently really stressed about getting my final grades back so i’ve been using university grade calculator a lot to test some possible outcomes.

for context, i did six modules in my third year, all worth 20 credits each, with my dissertation worth 40 credits.

these are my grades so far:

module 1: 69% (20 credits)
module 2: 69% (20 credits)
module 3: 60% (20 credits)

dissertation: 67% (40 credits)

i’m unsure what i will get in my final two modules. i have done one assignment so far for module 4 which i scored 65% in and i’m expecting to get slightly more than this in assignment 2. if i assume that i will get 65% overall for this module, according to university grade calculator, it is possible for me to score 40% overall in module 5, and still graduate with a solid 2:1…does this seem right? i am really worrying over my final grade as i really don’t know how i’ve done in module 5…getting 40% is incredibly unlikely but it’s a comfort. it might also be worth mentioning that i got a 2:1 in second year also which is worth 25% of my overall grade with third year being worth 75%.

can anyone validate this? or at least explain how likely it is for me to get a 2:1? thank you in advance!

Your score for this year if we assume module 4 is 65 and module 5 is "a" will be (69*20+69*20+60*20+65*20+a*20+67*40)/120
So if you want that to be at least 60 then you must score 28 in module 5 (although obviously you need 40 to pass it without any compensatory measures)
Given you got a 2:1 in second year then a 2:1 this year will give you a 2:1 overall so in answer to your question, yes you can score 40 in module 5 and still get a 2:1 overall

thank you so much for responding, i know it seems like a silly question but the anxiety about final grades can be so intense! i appreciate it ☺️☺️
