So for one module in particular right now, I have been using a method in my spreadsheet below (my way) which I believed to always be the correct method for working out marks.

The module consists of two elements, individually with a weighting of 50% per element. 50% weighting for one element and 50% for the other.

Not great with math but I have done the following:

my way (works out the same as my dmu marks totals, but cant see it right now due to technical error to double check, stuff is always down like this which is frustrating):


  1. (my mark / 100 percent * weighting (50% per exam)) + (my mark / 100 percent * weighting (50% per exam)) = 11%

  2. (18/100*50)+(3/100*50) = 11 % overall module grade (rounded)


uni way (marks indicated on blackboard):

  1. (my mark / weighting (50% per exam) * 100 percent + (my mark / weighting (50% per exam) * 100 percent) / 2 = 21%
  2. (18/50*100)+(3/50*100)/2 = 21 % overall module grade



My way seems more correct to figure out the overall module grade??? Can someone please help me clarify this?

Oh man, I hate doing formulas or working grade/clarification myself. I just used this site https://unigradecalc.com/ which I found helpful to calculate my grades bearing in mind how my university calculates the classification.
