I am a bit confused as to what I need in the final exam to pass.
Currently, I have 67% out of the coursework which is worth 30%.
The exam is out of 300 marks, and is obviously worth 70% overall.
What would I need in the exam to ensure I pass (40%)?

So your coursework contributes 0.3x67% = 20.1% towards your total mark.
In order to get X% overall, you need to get a contribution of (X-20.1)% from your exam. Since your exam contributes 70%, you therefore need to get ((X-20.1)/0.7)% on your exam. (Multiply by 3 to get the number of marks out of 300).
If you want to get 40% overall, you need at least 28.5% (86/300) in the exam.
If you want to get 50%, you need at least 129/300 in the exam.
For 60%, you need 171/300, and for 70% you need 214/300.
However, I'm wondering if you should check whether in order to pass your degree you have to pass every module - that's how it is at some unis.
Good luck in the exam!
