Assuming you are talking about being accepted for a masters degree:
If you are paying your own fees, chances of getting accepted are high as long as you show enthusiasm and explain that you are definately capable of doing well despite the 2.2
If you are looking for any kind of funding then the chances of getting accepted with a 2.2 are very low.
Postgrad study isn't funded in the same way as undergrad so you wouldn't be entitled to funding through Sudent Finance Firect I'm afraid. Many postgrads rely on savings or work part time. You could also look into getting a career development loan (which most banks offer I think) or taking the course part time. Other than that as the previous reply said it is possible to funding though a body like the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) or the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) (depending on your discipline), but these are competitive and normally linked to a PhD track masters (i.e. 1+3).
I take it you're in your final year of undergrad and need a 2.1 to get funding?
Just to wish you the best of luck getting your 2.1 ... I managed to get my degree up one class in terms of average marks in my final year so it can be done if you work hard.
