Hey Guys,

This question is prob miles below what you guys normally do but I'm really bad at maths and could use some help.

I'm trying to calculate what percentage I need in my exams to get a first class degree (I'm a final year Business student )

My current situation -

In each module I study I need a 70% overall grade
Each exam is worth either 60% or 70%
and the remaining 30% - 40% of each module is made up of assignment work

so for example - if I have a 80% grade in a 30% weighted assignment, what % do I need to get in my 70% weighted exam to get a 70% overal grade?

Any help given would be a great help!

Thanks

Hi KingstonStudent,

Working from your example, you can set it up this way:

$30\%(80)+70\%(x)=70$

$.3(80)+.7x=70$

$24+.7x=70$

$.7x=46$

$x=65.7$

3. Me heevans if someone gets 100% in their assignments (which is very doable since you are given time, your notes and the trusty internet) you only have to get roughly 58% in the exams to get a first...

Makes me wish I'd not left mine till the last minute...

4. Thanks Guys!

Huge help
