    Considering these are the grade weightings;
    Unit 1 -16.67%
    Unit 2 - 16.67%
    Unit 3 - 16.67%
    Unit 4 -15%
    Unit 5 - 20%
    Unit 6 -15%

    And these are my grades:

    Unit 1 - 70%
    Unit 2 - 66%
    Unit 3 - 63%
    Total = 199UMS.
    Unit 4 - Not done yet
    Unit 5 - Not done yet
    Unit 6 - 53/60 = 88%

    How much percentage would I need from unit 4+5 together or seperately to keep a B?
    Thank you!
    I'm useless trying to get my head around this!

    Your UMS so far:
    Unit 1 - 70
    Unit 2 - 66
    Unit 3 - 63
    Unit 6 - 79
    Total: 278.
    A 'B' is 420/600 UMS. You need 142 more to get 420, so 142 UMS points combined from units 4 and 5. Unit 4 is weighted 15% so it's worth maximum 90 UMS, and unit 5 is weighted 20% so it's worth maximum 120 UMS. Sooo, all in all, you need 142 out of a possible 210 remaining UMS points to get a B.

    Because it's weighted as 15%, so that's 90/600. Maximum you can get for unit 6 is 90.
