    For those of you who got a 1st (70+%) in your 1st year did you graduate with a 1st class degree?

    Or did you find it a struggle to maintain your high grades in year 2 & 3 etc?

    yep but it was one hell of a struggle. Getting the 1st in the first year was alot less work than getting a first in the final year exams.

    I presume you just got your results and got over 70%. congrats

    71% y1, 60.25% y2.
    y1 = nothing
    y2= 1/3rd of end classification.

    I probably put half as much effort in going to lectures and doing homework stuff this year. However, revision for second semester exams was up on what I did last year. I require I change in attitude come October. January is usually a bad exam season for me, this year I need to avoid that.
