Do uni's round up degree class percentages?Watch this thread

To expand slightly, your average is what it is.
If you need 60% and you get 59.776578%
...you didn't get 60%
So it's not a 2:1.
Even though i'm only going to uni in September.. I thought first year scores don't count towards the final? I could be wrong.
Also, even though the grade doesn't "count", if you want to apply for internships or go on a year abroad it is always best to get a 2:1 in your first year as it shows commitment and academic ability.
I think as well, at least that's the case at Leeds Uni where I go, that they sometimes refer back to your first year mark if you end up with a borderline degree classification at the end. Could be wrong but I vaguely remember reading it somewhere?
Would love to know this also; I have got my final results today and averaged out at 69.73% I honestly don't think it is going to be rounded to a 70 which I am gutted about as I worked so hard. If anyone was or is in a similar situation I'd love to hear how you fair out as its a long wait to July for confirmation of my results
1. they just round up if they see a good number of excellent marks on individual exams/assignments
2 have some complicated criteria that if you get over a certain average and get a specific number of marks over a certain amount they give you a 2:1
3. if lets say you've got 6/7 out of 8 modules clearly 2:1s and then one or module that lets the average done then they might give you a 2:1
