Hello there!

Im not sure if this is in the right place, but it can be moved if it is. I need some to give me a calculation so I can work out my total module percentage. I'm rubbish at maths!

Each module contains 30% coursework and 70% exam. I need a calculation to find my overall total percentage for the module.


Example


Coursework (worth 30% of module) = 62%

Exam (worth 70% of module) = 65%

What calculation would I need to find the total percentage for that module?

Thank you,

xxxx

You have "62% of 30%" and "65% of 70%"; whenever you see "(quantity) of (quantity)" you have to multiply, and so overall you got
\dfrac{62}{100} \times \dfrac{30}{100} + \dfrac{65}{100} \times \dfrac{70}{100}
...which is 64.1% overall.

Hi i need help too. Not sure if my calculation is right.

My results were:
27% exam (worth 50%)
58% coursework (worth 25%)
66% coursework 2 (worth 25%)

Thank you.

Please post your calculation, which should be identical in format to the one that you quoted.

(27 \cdot 0.5) + (58 \cdot 0.25) + (66 \cdot 0.25) = 44.5 \%

The percentages that are the '(worth ..%)' have been divided by 100

I combined both coursework 58+66/2= 62
Then I added the exam result which is 27+62/2= 44.5%

is that right? thank you

Thank you, Unfortunately I have retake the exam, which is my tutor said. It is my final year in middlesex university taking up biomedical science.
40% is the passing grade, do i really need to retake the exam or should I run after them about this overall result. To be honest i don't really want to retake anymore, I am stressing out looking for experience and pressure from my mum. Please help

You can try and ask the university forum or be specific and ask in the Middlesex forum (here in TSR). In my opinion I'd go with your tutor's advice since he/she knows the best approach though it's worth asking other people who have good knowledge on how to go about your situation.

I feel for you, as I am most likely looking at the same dilemma in 2 days time where quite frankly I want to tell the university to '**** off' about one exam that I failed miserably, because resorting an exam now is just cruel.

I'm afraid your tutor is probably familiar with the rules of your degree, but worth checking for yourself whether all units must be passed to graduate (it'll be online somewhere) and if it's still unclear then message your department.

30*0.58 = 17

23/70 * 100 = 33%

So you'll need at least 33% in your exam to pass. Bear in mind if you need to pass both components and the minimum threshold is 40%, you'll need that.

Assignment: 48/100
Report: 62/100
How many marks do I need in the exam?
Total (Assigment + Report + Exam E ): (48 \times \frac{30}{100})+(62\times \frac{10}{100}) + (E \times \frac{60}{100}) = 40

Rearranging for E gives you 33 % minimum (rounded up) to achieve in your exam to obtain minimum 40 % and pass.

Add both percentages together then divide by two to get 63.5 Or add the amount of raw marks you got overall then divide by the max marks then times by 100

This is all in decimal form, let E be your exam mark.

(\frac{35}{100} \times \frac{40}{100}) + (E \times \frac{60}{100}) = \frac{60}{100}

Rearranging gives you E = 0.7 \dot{6}

So you basically need to score 77 % on your exam.
