This year you got 52% overall - a 2:2
10.4% of overall degree mark.
As above. You need 62 in third year to average 60 overall, and 74.5 to average 70.

You need to check your degree regulations for alternative methods of classification and upgrading near misses.

You think it’s possible achieving 75%?
Pop your grades in here and you can work out where you can drop points and where you might need them 😊

Unlikely, but you've reached 70 before which suggests you can do it again. Are your marks on an upward trajectory? Have you worked out what went badly wrong on the 43 and the 40?

And as I suggested, you need to check your degree regulations. If your uni have a generous near miss policy, you might need significantly less than 74.

Yeah I know what happened the 40’s one of them I answered the wrong question and tasks and the other not enough references

Ok, so you can avoid doing that again!

Which uni?
