    For the benefit of anyone who may find this thread wondering the same thing, it depends on how your coursework(s) and exam(s) are weighted. It's very possible to get a B overall with an A or a B in the exam (depending on weighting) or even an A overall (depending on the weighting, and how high the C/A's are.

    If it's 25% and 75% for example then you do (0.25 * UMS in CA) + (0.75 * UMS in exam), and then it'd usually be 0.6 (= 60%) or above for a C, 70 for a B etc.
