I'm trying to figure out how much i need to get on a essay to pass a module. So far i have done one essay worth 25% and got 62%. The next essay i have been set is 41%, how much would i need to obtain a pass? (40% overall).
62% on a 25% essay = 15.5% overall?
So on the next essay (41%), i'll need 54.5% to pass overall?

Yes, your first essay gives you 15.5% of the maximum marks for the module.
To pass after doing the second essay, your mark x% for that essay must satisfy
0.41*x >= 40 - 15.5
0.41*x >= 24.5
x >= 24.5/0.41
x >= 59.8
You need about 60%.
