This calculator can be used to generated weighted grades for an undergraduate degree consisting of weighting based years.

### How does it calculate my grades?

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

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

#### Example

We have two years for a degree:

Year 2 66% 40%
Year 3 75% 60%

To complete this, we would do:

(66 * 40) / 100 = 26.40% year 2
(75 * 60) / 100 = 45.00% year 3

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

26.40 + 45.00 = 71.40% weighted grade

### Partially complete years

For incomplete years, 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 years for a degree:

Year 2 75% 25%
Year 3 63% 25%
Year 4 --- 50%

To complete this, we would do:

(75 * 25) / 100 = 37.50% year 2
(63 * 25) / 100 = 15.75% year 3

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 - this can be completed by adding the credits with a zero grade, and increasing it until you reach the grade you want.

### 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.
