I'm getting 60% in my accounting course. I would need 70% to receive a passing grade.
I still have:
2 exams remaining (50points) all exams are worth 60% of total grade and we completed 2.
4 homework assignments (10 points each) - we completed 3 and worth 20% of total grade
7 in class assignments (5 points each) - we already completed 5 and its worth 10% of our grade
final exam worth 15 %.

I have tutor hired but is there hope for me if i study like crazy and eat sleep breathe accounting for another 8 weeks?

I have a 93% overall grade in my class right now and I didn’t do an assignment that’s worth 25% what would my overall grade drop to?

I have a test grade overall of 85 percent. Test count 75 percent of grade and homework 25 percent. I had 100 in homework plus 10 points xtra credit in homework. What will the score be? Thank you!

My grades are 40/50, 43/50. Final is out of 80. What do I need to get on final to get an 85% in class? Tests are about 80% of grade

Roger: What’s the other 20% of your grade made of? Try out the calculator mode labeled “I need something else”. It should be able to help.

alright so I currently have a 72% in my nursing class I need at least a78% to pass. I have two finals coming up that are both worth 20% of my grade if I pass with at least a B on both will my grade be passing?

Roger: Are your finals each worth 20% of your grade? Or are your two finals altogether worth 20% of your grade? I’ll assume the latter. In that case, you’ll need to average at least a 102% on your final exams in order to raise your overall grade to a 78%.

Hi Roger,
How does a UC weighted GPA of 3.6 and SAT score of 1440 sound for UC Irvine? Or actually which UC can I get into for CS or Electrical Engineering major?
I hope you respond!

Roger: Sounds pretty good to me. I don’t know anything about UC Irvine though.

Test are worth an overall 45 percent of my grade. I have score 100percent on two test and the last test 50 percent. Of the 45 percent, how much of the 45 percent for test grades will I receive?

Roger: Well, your test average should be an 83.3%, assuming that each test is worth one third of your tests category. Then, 83.3% of 45 is 37.5. So, I suppose you’ll receive 37.5% out of the 45%?

My grade is an 80%. What will it end up being if I add 33% to it?

Roger: Well, 80% + 33% is 113%. But one third of 80 is 26.7%. I’m still not sure what you’re asking.

My grade is an 80%. What will it be after I add 1/3 to it?

Roger: I don’t quite understand your question. What do you mean by “add 1/3 to it”?

Man I just come on here to figure out how screwed I am, but then it turns out I'm usually not that screwed. Thanks for helping me not lose sleep Roger

Roger: Glad to help!

What is my overall grade if I have a 95.0 in my class and the final is 15% and I get an F (45.0)?

Roger: Your overall grade should drop to an 87.5%.

responding back to yesterday's question
Currently, the full percentage has not come out but I had gotten 92% 1st 85% 2nd 85% 3rd and for the 4th it is so far 85% and the finals are worth 10% of our grade overall.

Roger: It sounds like your overall grade should be approximately 86.8%. In that case, you’ll need to score at least a 114.3% on your final to raise your overall grade to an 89.5%.

I have a B+ average in my biology class
What would I need to get on my exam to boost my grade possibly higher or even an A-?

Roger: Probably an A or an A+. How much is your exam worth? What’s your current grade, expressed as a percentage? And what’s the minimum grade required for an A−?

Discussions are worth 23% of my grade. I’m trying to figure out how much of my total grade I would lose per missed discussion. Each one is worth 2 points out of 40 total possible because there are 20 discussions. I can’t seem to figure out how to calculate it. Thank you!

Roger: It’s not a constant amount. For example, if you miss your first discussion, then you’d have a zero for your entire discussions category, which is worth 23%. But at the end of the year, each discussion should only be worth one-twentieth of 23% (e.g. 1.15%).

So I have a 70% as my grade and lets say I didnt take the final for that class and got a 0% on my final, the final weighs 40%, what would my grade drop down to?

Roger: Is your final worth 40% of your grade by itself? Or is it part of a “tests” category that is altogether worth 40%? In the former case, your grade should drop to a 42%.

Hello, I have a 64% in my math class right now. My final is tomorrow and it is worth the last 10% of our grade. What do I need to get on my final in order to move up to a 70% in the class?

Roger: You’ll need to score at least a 124% on your final to get a 70% overall.

I have a 97% in algebra. my final is 57 questions and 20% of my grade. how many can I miss and stay above a 95%.

Roger: You’ll need to score at least 87% on your final, which is about 49.6 questions out of 57.
