    Yes this one of those 'can I still get a 2:1'? questions.
    Ok if you're a math genius please help me out here.
    My degree is weighted like this:

    1:2:4.

    So thats 1 for the first year and 2 for the second and 4 for the third year. In my first year I got a 2:1, at 60%. In my second year however I got a 2:2 at 55%. To get a 2:1 you need 60% overall, is this still possible? And if so how possible? And also how much percentage do I already have towards getting a 2:1 and how much do need? Basically what is the minimum grade I can get next year and still get a 2:1.

    Although I'm terrible at maths and I am very capable in English I've just fallen in love and so I was completely distracted from my studies.

    GOD BLESS ANYONE WHO CAN FIGURE ALL THAT MATHS OUT. I will seriously owe you one.

    Yeah, 65% will average it out to 60% overall so that's the minimum you'll need

    whoa i forgot about this, the weighting was meat to say

    1,2,4

    so the first year counts 1 part towards the final grade. I have to average about 63 this year, i think.

    who knows, well i will in a few a weeks. fingers crossed!

    I'm not sure, I mean do they take that into account?

    I mean, sure it's harsh to say, but isn't a degree about how good you are, not how hard you tried?
