I have no idea what a 2.2 is, but if you say it's good, congratulations to him and well-done's all around :D

I goes like this

1 = A average
2.1 = B+/B average
2.2 = B/B- average
3 = C Average

If you don't hit the C average, you fail and have to repeat modules.

He said something about being 3% below a 2.1 and a possibility of going to the board? I don't care, he's got a degree, he's worked hard for it and I'm super proud :)

And here is my similarly proud moment...My clever boy got his degree from Exeter - History and Politics.
Couldn't be prouder. Mind you, reality hits now. He has got to work out what he wants to do as a "proper job" whilst looking for something to keep the wolf from the door.

So, the family tariff is one BEng, and one BA so far. My daughter will hopefully get a BSc in a couple of years - will be so nice to get the set!!

He worked hard and that is what I am proudest of - he admits he hardly did anything for his A levels and this is the first time he has had to buckle down.

:cheer2: :cheer2:
