1. Hey, can you help me work out my overall grade for graduating uni, please? I think this is 60.3 but maths has never been a strong point of mine!!

So we take 100 credits from Level 5 at 25% and 100 credits for Level 6 at 75%, each module is 20 credits.

Level 5
62
62
56
56
55

Level 6
65

61
61
53

Does 60.3 as my overall grade work out correctly? Your help would be massively appreciated!

Thanks

So each second year module counts towards 5% of your overall grade (25/5) and third year 15% (75/5).

So your average is 0.05*(62+62+56+56+55) +0.15 (65+65+61+61+53) = 14.55 +45.75 = 60.3 and your maths is correct. Good job
