    HELLO!

    I have a course where a presentation weighs 20% and the rest is the exam mark.

    If someone got 25 marks more (out of 100) in the presentation, and we got the same mark in the exams, how much will his final mark be more than mine?

    thanks!

    They got 25% higher in something worth 20% of a module so they'll get 5% more than you overall.

    What else do you want to know?

    20% of 25 = 5%

    20% of 5 = 1 mark

    Why do you take the 20% two times?
