    Sorry - I know this thread is a repeat but the search wouldn't work for me, and I'm sure others will be looking for this today.

    Basically - I'm crap at maths - how do I work out my overall grade for this year?

    I do 120 credits, broken down into 6 modules worth:

    10 (64)
    10 (67)
    20 (55)
    20 (58)
    30 (70)
    30 (61)

    Let's say my grade for each module are the numbers in brackets.

    How do I work it out?

    Again, sorry for the repeat.

    Cheers

    (64/100)*10 + (67/100)*10 + (55/100)*20 + (58/100)*20 + (70/100)*30 + (61/100)*30

    ..should give you your overall marks out of 120, but after that I'm not sure what your grade boundaries are :confused:

    Thanks

    Presumably I work that out for each module, then total it?

    Grade boundaries are the usual, so:

    70%+ = 1st
    60 - 70 = 2.1
    50 - 60 = 2.2
    etc

    Actually are you sure this is correct?

    It seems that my grade comes out higher than I expected - and I used this formula for my grades from last year and got something a bit higher than it was when I calculated it then (don't know what I did differently though).

    The suspense!

    Gah. Really? It takes ages to type.

    (Grade * allocated credits)+(Grade * allocated credits).../total credits

    So if my second year is worth 30% and I got 61.25 %, what do I need to get the various grades overall in my third year?

    I really suck at maths!

    Third year is worth 70%

    You need these amounts to achieve each classification (to 2dp)

    1st: 73.75%
    2.1: 59.46%
    2.2: 45.18%
    3rd: 30.89%

    Working you currently have 62.5% of 30% = 18.75%

    So (final percentage - 18.75)/70 = percentage you need in your final year
