I got a grade of 68 from my tort law essay(50%). I have an exam and the exam is 50% of the mark too. Which grade will pass me at least? I am really in doubt of this exam so I'm really curious. The pass mark is only 40 for this year.

Also, the exam is a resit (if that affects the final result)because I didn't enter the previous exam, I had a medical problem but I was late in getting in touch with the university about it and had no proof so I didn't bother.

Also, when we resit, the highest we can achieve is the grade of 40 even if you get higher.

I don't know about the mark schemes etc and I'm doing a completely different degree (BSc geography), but if the marks are 50/50, then 68 would be 34 marks, so for 40 you'd only need 12 to pass. That's if the module hasn't been capped at 40 due to being a resit. In this case as long as you passed you'd get 40.
Hope this helps

I suspect most universities have a rule that you need to pass every assessment within a module to pass the module. In that case even though the poster above is correct that 68/12 averages to 40, you would still fail the written exam and thus fail the module. Obviously if that is the case you need whatever the lowest pass mark on the exam is (I assume 40%), to pass the module.

You need to check your university's rules, not post on a forum where no-one has the slightest idea which university you go to and thus what the rules are.

Wouldn't that count as failing half of the module?

I literally have no idea which part of my post your question refers to, or even how it relates to my post in any way.
