# Working out my grade watch

1. 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
2. Please show workings too, as I just made up the numbers.
3. (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
4. 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!
6. 62.5

Pretty much.

Gah. Really? It takes ages to type.

That makes more sense - thanks
10. 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%
11. 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
