This calculator can be used to generated weighted grades for a module consisting of assignments, e.g. an exam and coursework.

### How does it calculate my grades?

First, it multiplies the grade by its weighting to generate a weighted grade for that row.

The weighted grades are then summed to generate an overall weighted grade for the module.

#### Example

We have two grades for a module:

Coursework 75% 70%
Exam 63% 30%

To complete this, we would do:

(75 * 70) / 100 = 52.50% coursework
(63 * 30) / 100 = 18.90% exam

The weighted grades are then summed to create the overall result for the module:

52.50 + 18.90 = 71.40% weighted grade

### Partially complete modules

For incomplete modules, input the grades you've achieved so far, and it will calculate the average based on this, ignoring the incomplete portion.

#### Example

We have three assignments for a module:

Coursework 75% 50%
Exam 1 63% 25%
Exam 2 --- 25%

To complete this, we would do:

(75 * 50) / 100 = 37.50% coursework
(63 * 25) / 100 = 15.75% exam

The weighted grades are then summed to create the overall result:

37.50 + 15.75 = 53.25% weighted grade

By doing this, you can also play around with predictions for the unachieved grade and see what grade you might end up with.

This also allows you to create a target for the unachieved grade.

### Information

Universities have different classification policies, such as:

• Disregarding the lowest grade for a number of credits (e.g. lowest 20 credits of level 5)
• Achieving above a certain percentage in one level may push you up a classification

While these calculators can't handle these scenarios, they can give you a good idea of where you stand, and what you can do to improve your grades.

You can check the specific policies relating to your course with your university. These are normally available online.
