    Hi guys,

    Sorry to post something like this on here but I am an absolute idiot when it comes to Maths.

    I got 51 from an essay (worth 33% of the final module mark) and am absolutely devastated. How much would I need to get from my exam (worth 66%) to get a 2.1 (for my uni a 2.1 starts from 60) in this module?

    Also another question: does a 20 credit module count less for the final graduation grade than a 30 credit module?

    Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you very much!

    You need 64.5 in the exam to get a 2:1. (I rounded up to 1/3 and 2/3 because 33% and 66% is still missing 1%)

    Yes, of course a 30 credit module is worth more than a 20 credit module. (50% more, or 33% less, however you like to phrase it)
