    anyone have any experience of getting 'bumped up' a level?
    e.g. if you are a percent or two below a boundary, 59% 69% etc...?

    preliminary marks show im on 68.6%
    so is there much chance of getting moved up to 70%?

    this ever happened to anyone?

    u have to get your work reviewed, if they miss something that worthy of more marks u will get it, but also they can be marked down as they are marked by different tutors.

    One of my mates just got his results back and he got 1 mark below a 2.1 and another mate got 69.56% overall and they rounded it up to 70% so he got a first. Getting 1 mark below a grade must hurt

    I have had mates get a mark or so off a 2.1 and get bumped up to it, so I would say they'll probably do it with you having to get it reviewed

    Ye but I don't think it means 70% of the total marks, they scale it somehow, I'm not really sure how it works and I think its different for each course and each uni.

    A lot of the time they will bump up the last .5%, although to get a certain level you need a certain amount of grades in that bracket, ie. you cant get a bump up to a grade that the majority of your work fails to hit

    i heard that in some places if you get around 69 they bring you in and interview you to determine whether you are 1st worthy. remarks take up too much time
