What percentage would I need to get on this exam to pass the module? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey Everyone!

    Ive got an accounting exam on wedsnesday and I think I know what I need to get in the exam, but Im not sure and am confusing myself The exam is worth 70% of the module. I am already on 13.5% from the other 30%.

    To pass the module, I need 40% overall. Since I am already on 13.5%, I need 26.5% to pass the module. Am I right in saying that one the 70% exam I only need 18.55 marks (or percent) to get the overall 40% to pass the module?

    Sorry this seems confusing, Im confused myself

    Thanks for your help everyone!

    You need to get 38% on the exam.

    And you don't deserve to be an accountant.
