# Any Mathematicians? Degree grade calculation confusion- HELP!! Watch

Announcements
1. Hi there i'm really confused regarding how to work out my final grade average. My grades are below

63.5 (Coursework and examination combined 20 credits)
59 (Coursework and examination combined 20 credits)
63.5 (Coursework and examination combined 20 credits)
58.5 (Coursework and examination combined 20 credits)

58 (Dissertation 40 credits)

Calculation 1: 63.5+59+63.5+58.5 + (58 dissertation)=302.5
302.5/5= 60.5

Final Year Total= 60.5

Calculation 2: 63.5+59+63.5+58.5= 244.5
244.5/4= 61.125
61.125 + (58 dissertation) = 119.125
119.125/2 = 59.56

Final Year Total=59.56

Which calculation is correct? Thank you in advance!

Neither.

[(63.5*20) + (59*20) + (63.5*20) + (58.5*20) + (58*40)] / 120 = 60.08%

Who cares about that, at least you got a 2:1 in whatever it is you're doing
