I think it is still very possible for you to graduate with a 2-1. You, however, have to be very calculative.

Your cgpa is calculated based on the number of units and grade point...
A=5 points, B=4 points, C=3points...F=0 points.
You need to ensure that you ACE the courses with the highest units. getting an A in a one unit course is useless if you get an E in a 4 unit course.

For example, if you are doing 3 courses in 400 level first semester
course 1= 4units, course 2= 3units and course 3=1unit
if you get an A in course 1, a B in course 2 and a C in course 3

your GP for the semester will be (4*5+3*4+1*3)/(4+3+1) = 35/8 =4.38

if you get the same grades but reversed (C in course 1, B in course 2 and A in course 3)
your GP will be (4*3+3*4+1*5)/(4+3+1) = 29/8 =3.63

so, choose your battles well... Target the courses with the highest units and make sure you ace them... You do not have to get straight As but get the As where they matter.

Wish you all the best

I have given you a guide... you will need to do your calculations yourself. You will need to be very objective and goal oriented but you can very well achieve a 2.1

your final cgpa, as you know, depends on every grade you have gotten from your first year to your final year.

1.Get a pen, paper and calculator (or better still, a simple excel sheet smiley) get a list of all the courses you have done so far, the number of units attached to each of them and the grades you scored. Calculate you cgpa till date
2. Get a list of the course you are going to do in your 4th and 5th year with the number of units attached to each course (ask your seniors if you do not have a copy of your school's prospectus :-) )
3. calculate your future results making sure you have As and Bs in the courses that carry the most weight (as described in my previous post)

Do the possible permutations and combinations smiley then, you will be able to answer your question... AND have a goal to achieve!

all the best
