Hi,
I got 62.2 in 2nd year which is worth 25% of my final grade.
What do I need to get in 3rd year for a 1st when 3rd year is 75% of the final grade?
Thank you

Let’s assume they calculate your grades by rounding the percentage marks to the nearest whole number, i.e call your mark this year 62% and your mark next year “X” %

Generally a first is 70% overall. Setting up the following equation

100% x 70% = 25% x 62% + 75% x X

7000 = 1550 + 75X

5450 = 75X

72.6… 73 = X

Aim for no less than 73%
