Anyone help me to understand QCA?

    Howye lads and girls.

    I'm a final year student and I need some help in understanding QCA for my degree classification. So basically coming into final year I was on a QCA of 3.00 so I was at a 2.1 degree classification.

    Did alright in my Christmas exams, got a 3.30, which brought my cumulative average up to 3.13. I would love to get a first class honours (3.40).

    However, I'm terrible at maths and am struggling to make it out. I've been told 4th year is double weighted but I do not understand what bearing that has on my QCA, if anyone could explain that. If anyone would be able to work out what I would need to get a 1.1 degree also I would greatly appreciate it, because it's all going way over my head.

    Some extra details: QCA is based off of 2nd year and final year, first and third year do not have any bearing:
    2nd year semester one QCA: 2.96
    2nd year semester two QCA: 3.04
    4th year semester one QCA: 3.30
