I'm sure you won't, but don't get too complacent.
I had a student a few years ago who went into his final year with 85% (70 needed for a 1st), which is extremely high for an essay subject, and he came out with a 2:1 because he stopped working...
Well that's one advantage of it all being group work projects this last semester. None of us feel we can slack off totally, as it means you mess up other people's results too: And some of them need/want every percent they can scrabble together. 5 years of working together means the cohort is quite close, so there is strong emphasis on pulling together. Especially now the 'laziest' students are the ones under the most pressure to try and pull themselves up into the magic 2:1 bracket.
I need 55+ in my final semester. There's no way I can not do any work, but its just a relief don't have to fret so much anymore either.
