Struggling away in the library? Twiddling your thumbs because you're finished? Afraid of the future and all it holds? The Tab, yet again, are here to help.

With our degree calculator, you can enter all of your marks from each year so far and then work out what you need in your remaining assignments to get that coveted 2.1. (Because firsts are for nerds.) It looks a bit village, but it works.

Note: This calculator was designed for English unis. You can still use it – put your final two years in the boxes for second and third years.

Some useful breakdowns

10% of a 15 credit module – 1.5 credits.
15% – 2.25 credits.
20% – 3 credits.
25% – 3.75 credits.
30% – 4.5 credits.
35% – 5.25 credits.
40% – 6 credits.
45% – 6.75 credits.
50% – 7.5 credits.
60% – 9 credits.
70% – 10.5 credits.
80% – 12 credits.
90% – 13.5 credits.

To work out the equivalent percentage for a 30 credit module…double the number of credits for the 15 credit module (who said GCSE Maths wouldn’t come in handy?)
