    i was just wondering how hard thethird year is compared to the second? cos i need to get a relly good mark in my third year due to not doing well in my second year because of lack of effort

    what economic modules did you do in the 2nd and 3rd year?

    I'm sort of in the same boat, the only difference is I got a poor mark because I'm stupid.

    3rd year is not much more work, make sure you spend the summer going over what you learnt in the 2nd year and patch up any holes in your knowledge.

    I've done Intro to Micro, Intro to Macro, Intermediate Micro, Intro to Econometrics, Economics of the Financial System, Econometric Modelling 1, Econometric Modelling 2, Economics of Industry and the Firm over the three years.

    How well do you need to do in the final year to get a 2.1? As long as it's not much above 70 you'll be fine, if you work of course...

    Not very. Macro is more advanced as you'd expect but Econometrics and Micro are really easy.

    I thought I aced the Data Analysis exam and I'm very sure I got aleast 70% right, however my exam mark was much lower. I can even remember all my answers and I checked them after the exam and they were correct.... Is there anyway I can appeal because I know they have marked the paper wrong :/

    Nah they don't really help. There isn't much in Econometrics besides t-tests, and some basic stats. If second year BSc Economics students can't do basic stats then it's not too good really.
