    Hi guys, got my results today and a little disappointed.

    Equity & Trusts 46%
    European Community Law 45%
    Land Law 52%
    Tort Law 56%

    Not entirely gutted as I did have several ops this year, over the easter period/time for revision especially. Oh well, still got a 2:1 in my first year, though first year didnt technically count.

    The weighting for year 2 is 40% of my degree,
    so year 3 is 60%.

    I understand I will have to get my head down, but could I still achieve a 2:1 based on these 2nd year results?

    you need an average of 66.6% or more in your final year for that 2:1. not impossible. you don't need 70% average but overall high marks will be good to counter some low marks.

    Like Quady says, you could if you averaged over 70% in your third year. Whether you think that is do-able depends on how much you dossed this year.

    Hi!

    I have just finished a law degree. In my second year I really messed up and got 51, 53, 57 and 57 in Equity and Trusts, international human rights, Tort and EU and Admin law respectively.

    However in my final year I worked my arse off day in, day out - even on Christmas day. I worked 11 hour days for a large part of it and came out with a finals average of 66% (2.1). You can do it but you must work incredibly hard and don't expect to have a life! This was my experience. I had to ask myself what was more important and it was pain now and gain later!

    Hope this in some way helps!
