    Hi, is anyone aware of how the SQA tally the marks for exams which contain multiple papers?

    For example in Modern Studies, if I got 50% (C) in Paper 1 and 100% (A) in Paper 2, would they average out the grades to give and overall B, or would my percentage be averaged to give me 75% for an overall A?

    Does the same system apply to every subject or do subjects combine grades/marks differently?

    If anyone is aware of the system or has any links to further reading on it, I would greatly appreciate it.


    It would be your totals added

    eg modern studies

    50% in paper 1 would be 30 marks

    100% in paper 2 would be 30 marks

    total is 60 marks out of 90
    so grade according to 2010 boundries would be B
