sorry they are all in percentages. so 62% and 57%. I am wanting at least a 61% average for the whole unit.

Are the essays equally weighted?
Yep

Well you're currently on 59% average.

So you're gonna need 65% to scrape the 61% overall

Best of

Then (57 + 62)/200 x 75 = 44.625 is what you have so far

61 - 44.625 = 16.375 = what you need

16.375/25 x 100 = 65.5 = what you need in your exam as a percentage

Thankyou so much... and for showing me how to work it out! :-)

That sounds like a tall order, but at least i have a goal!
