# Help to calculate credits

Hello!

I'm an international student and I'm struggling to understand how to calculate credits. Is there any formula, which will help me to figure out overall percentage that I have?

P.S. Sorry, if I'm posting it in the wrong section.

Yes... weighted averages.

For example, let's say there are 100 credits in a year.

You have a 50 credit unit and two 25 credit units.

You get 80 in the 50 credit unit, and 60 and 70 in the other two.

Your overall grade is 80*(50/100) + 60*(25/100) + 70*(25/100) = 72.5

Happy to help with this calculation, however you have to have attempted it first and post your working if you get stuck.
Above answer is correct. You could also do this. Whatever credit the module is divide that number by 10 then multiply your mark by this number e.g a 20 credit module you will multiply your mark by 2 and for a 40 credit multiply by 4. Add all the credits together then divide by 10.
Example
58 in a 20 credit module

70 in a 40 credit module

57 in a 20 credit

63 in a 20 credit

58 x 2

70 x 4

57 x 2

63 x 2

636 Then divide by 10 = 63.6

Hope this helps

Thank you for your reply! Sorry, this formula wasn't obvious to me when I wrote the post.

if we get less marks or not pass in 1 or 2 module and more marks in other moduls then we have any chance to pass or not???
