    i think they take the mark, not the grade.
    so if you got 5a*'s and 1 a you would average an a* overall 45-50/50

    use the uber-formula...

    40*((∑Module test scores)/300)+(∑coursework scores)/2+0.4*(Final exam percentage) will give you your overall percentage

    Module test scores = 40%
    Coursework = 20%
    Final exam = 40%

    Not quite.

    Modules: 30%
    Coursework: 20%
    Paper 1: 25%
    Paper 2: 25%
