    I got mine, came out the day before the expected publication date.

    Medium 2.2 overall :yippe: , with a high 2.1 for continually assessed work and a low 2.2 for exams.

    Pleased as they were much much better than I expected, was genuinely not convinced I was going to pass. Took my second year exams having not taken first year ones because of health problems, and not taken any exams for 3 years so was somewhat out of practise and had major problems with timing. Director of Studies reckons I should be able to get a 2.1 next year, and that's just through improving exam technique and the style of project work, what he doesn't know yet is that I've just been identified as having a Specific Learning Difficulty and thus will be getting 25% extra time as well.

    Average of 59.5, so a 2:2. I needed a "satisfactory pass" to get into Kent in September so I hope that's enough >.<

    Franki, York class 59.5 as a 2:1, does Kent do the same? May be worth checking :)

    I got a 2:1 overall, I'm very very happy with that. I don't know the exact grade and I don't want to but tbh I don't even care if it was 61 and thus a low 2:1 - it says 2:1 on the certificate and that's all that matters!

    I'm not sure tbh. I have to email them anyway to see what they need as confirmation of my results, but I know that Northumbria class it as a 2:2. Even if they don't, I'm sure they'd recognise just how close I was anyway. If Northumbria's library wasn't utter, utter shite I would have got a higher average anyway (that 53 is for an essay I did where I got marked down for having very few secondary sources even though the library system had a grand total of 1 book relating to the subject, and a long list of completely irrelevant online journal articles).
