It was university of leeds and department of music so not an insane course like law or medicine but again no idea if they are lenient in the less intensive courses like music.
Wouldn't have a clue, sorry. It can differ from department to department though - at least from what I've heard.

I have just finished my first year law course and have averaged 59.5 and want to know if the uni would round this up to 60%. Therefore, I will have a 2.1 instead of a 2.2. If anyone knows please let me know.

Thanks!
my lecturer told me in "CSP" I will round up your marks if you get 59%+

UCL RESEARCH MATERIALOf the competitors examined, all 19 had a Borderline policy. 13 ‘automatically’ promoted Borderlinecandidates to the higher class if given criteria were met. 10 of these 13 considered students whoseweighted average fell within 2% of the next class boundary, whilst Birmingham considered students within2.5%, and Queen Mary and Liverpool considered students within 1%. At the remaining 6 institutions,Borderline decisions were discretionary, with some only considering Borderlines in exceptionalcircumstances. Of the discretionary policies, Imperial considered students within 2.5% of the boundary,whilst Durham, Warwick and Newcastle considered students within 2% and Leeds considered studentswithin 0.56%.

My uni look at 30% second year, 70% final year (including the final year project) or 100% final year mark. If you average over 55% they take the 30% of second year to make it up or leave it at 55% if it is not better.i would imagine this is for Computing/business degrees to compensate for the group work involved as this makes up alot of the course work and can impact severely on grades of an individual. I got 57.5 overall but went up to 62% by taking the best 30% of me second year mark

Some do for the sake of 0.5% I possibly would.
