    Hey I am awful at maths. I'm currently doing my degree at University and in my first year. I only need 40% overall to pass in each and every module. My modules consist of 50% coursework and 50% exam........so my question is how much would i need to pass in my exam for Int politics if i get 60/ 2:1 mark in my Coursework for Int politics module??

    from my calculations (may not be right!)

    50% * 60% = coursework marks = 30% of final grade obtained

    so you need 10% (overall) from the exams, which is 50% of the course, so thats 50%/10% = 20%

    You will need to get 20% of your exam right in order to get 40% overall

    In uni you need 40% in exams regardless of coursework marks
