1. Yes this one of those 'can I still get a 2:1'? questions.
My degree is weighted like this:

14.

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.
2. Um, I think you'd need 65% in the third year to get a 2:1, correct me if I'm wrong
3. Surely its 62.5%?
4. Yeah, 65% will average it out to 60% overall so that's the minimum you'll need
5. Oh wait...I didn't read the weighting bit...don't know what that means so disregard what I said!!

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!

7. not meat, meant ffs. also i was diagnosed with learning diffuculties in sem 2 of the third year, so i think it would unfair if they gave me a 2:2
8. 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?
9. Seems like your target must be at least 62.5% in your third year...so all the best to you!
