    can I still pass module?

    Module is in 2 parts.

    part 1 = 75%
    part 2 = 25%

    I need 40% in both to pass so 40% of 75% is 0.3 and 40% of 25% is 0.1

    I've done the whole % x score thing (0.02x81 etc) and so far I have 19.86 in part 1. Do I need 10.14 more to make it to 30?

    I have 2% iCMA (x2) + 8% TMA (x2) so 20 possible marks.

    I have no idea what you are trying to say here! Do you need "40% in both" or an average of 40% in the two? Or are you saying that there are 75 points possible in the first and 25 points possible in the second (in that case "%" is not appropriate).

    If the there are 75 points available and you need 40%, yes, that means you need .4(75)= 30 points. You say "so far I have 19.86". Is this an ongoing project? If so, then yes, you need to get another 30-19.86= 10.14 to get up to 30 points. I can't make any sense of "I have 2% iCMA (x2) + 8% TMA (x2) so 20 possible marks".
