    A class that I took as part of my last year of law is assessed by 1 presentation and 2 written exercises. But I was wondering, do University's round up the individual marks first then add them up? Or add them up and then round up?

    For example, if I got 65.5% for the presentation and 20.6 for the assignment; will this be added as it is (meaning it will amount to 86.2%) or will it be rounded up first (so 66 + 21) to amount to 87%?

    I know it seems like a trivial question, but the way my marks work out, it is important in determining whether I get a 1st or 2nd in this class. Thanks!

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
