I have used your finals grade calculator for over four years, but it took me until tonight to read through some of your blog posts. I am amazed at how your writing manages to be simultaneously beautiful, complex, and still make complete sense. I especially loved your philosophy related posts. I found them to be extremely reminiscent of literary works I studied back in AP English Language. Your perspective on the world and how humans work/think is enlightening, and I hope that one day I will be as wise (or at least as skilled of a writer) as you are. I would also like to make note that the fact that you sift through many silly comments in order to answer people who have questions, and your genuine concern for the people who use your website shows that you are a man of character and good intention. I apologize if I have gone overboard with praise, but I felt the need to profess the amount of respect I have for you, a person who I do not even know personally. Thank you once more for the calculator and the philosophic insight.

Your fan,

P.S. Do you have a twitter account that I can follow?

Hi Roger, I am one of your CS 162 students in Spring 2016. I know it is a bit awkward to ask about this on your page, but do you mind if I ask if you know of any current openings for internship projects at Google? Right now, I am in the host matching process with Google for a summer internship. However, after being in the candidate pool for a while, I still haven't heard back from any of the hosts yet. I have left my email privately. If you don't mind, please let me know if you know of any openings! I really appreciate your time reading this message!

Roger: I’ll send you an email.

How do I learn to get hella good at programming in less than a year?

Roger: That’s a hard question. It depends. It’s like asking a writer how to get good at writing in less than a year. Some people want to get good at storytelling. Some people want to critique literature. And some people just like linguistics and grammar. They’re all very different skills, and computer programming is the same way. If you’ve never written a computer program before, you should (1) take an introductory course on any beginner-friendly imperative programming language, and then (2) pick a goal for yourself and learn whatever you need to achieve it. There are plenty of online courses and textbooks about programming. I recommend Composing Programs, which is taught in the Python programming language and is probably a bit more theoretical than most online courses. Your goal can be anything (a mobile app, a website, or maybe a computer game). Having a goal gives you a concrete plan and objective to help direct your learning efforts. Good luck!

Hi Roger, I have an 89 in my english class right now and am hoping for an A (90%). we have an extra credit opportunity for 5 points in a section worth 20% of our grade. will that raise my grade to an A?

Roger: It depends on how many points you have in that section already. For example, if you currently have 100 points in your “section worth 20% of our grade”, then 5 points of extra credit would raise your overall grade by 1.0% (barely enough to raise your overall grade to an A).

I have an 81% and I took a test and that test was worth 8% of my grade. The grade I got was a 66 percent. What is my overall grade

Roger: Assuming that you have no more assignments to be included in your grade except for that test, your overall grade should drop to a 79.8%.

hey roger here is interesting question. i have 89 in my ap stat class how much would i need to get a 103 if my final is worth 2 percent of my chem grade

Roger: You’ll need to score at least a 789.0% on your final to get a 103.0% overall.

Mon Dec 19 2016 05:15:36 +0000

hey hey hey so i was wondering, when you calculate a high school GPA, do you use another website or do you calculate it yourself? i'm also a bit confused on how honors courses are apparently weighted differently than AP courses?

i used your final grade calculator both this year and last year and i just wanted to say that you're SUCH a blessing thank you so so much for creating it omg

Roger: Glad you like it! Different high schools have different rules for calculating the GPA. In the United States, the 4 point GPA scale is the most common. Try asking a classmate or instructor about how your high school calculates GPA’s.

Hello. I have an 80.4 in honors biology what will i need to get to get a 79? (More Info is down below)

Roger: You’ll need to score at least a 66.4% on your final exam to get a 79% overall.

I have a 85% in my honors Biology class and I want at least a 90, but all we have left is and exam which is worth 20% of our final grade. What do I need to score in order to at least get a 90 on my final grade

Roger: You’ll need to score at least a 110.0% on your final exam to get a 90% overall.

Thu Dec 15 2016 03:47:35 +0000

I have a 80% in honors biology, but i want it to at least an 85. The final is worth a double summative (1 summative = 75%). What do i have to get on my final? I've taken 6 tests so far. I've scored on test: 84, 77, 90, 71, 69, and 86.

Roger: In order to raise your overall grade by 5%, you’ll need to raise your summative average from a 79.5% to a 86.2%. So, you’ll need to score at least a 106.2% on your final exam to get a 85% overall (assuming you have no empty categories in your grade).

Wed Dec 14 2016 07:26:58 +0000

Just wondering, what's the lowest grade you've gotten on a BIG TEST? Like 50-100 point tests

Roger: Probably around 30-50%? I took a couple of pass/fail courses in college. After the midterm, I usually stopped paying attention entirely, because they’ll let you pass the course unless you really don’t put in any effort at all. So I just bullshitted the final exam (mostly essay questions anyway) and never bothered to even check what grade I got.

Wed Dec 14 2016 07:22:27 +0000

Hey Roger, I was just wondering if you could change the UC admissions calculator so that it uses the new SAT format, thanks!

Roger: The short answer is I can’t. I answered this question in the comments for the UC Freshmen Admissions Calculator a few months ago. Search that page for “new SAT” and you’ll find it.

Dear Roger,

I have a 101.3 in math, is it possible for me to drop down to a B if the final is worth 20%?

BTW your website is amazing!

Jimmy Chang

Roger: Sure it is. If you get a zero on the final, your overall grade should drop to a 81.0%.

I am very angry, because my cis white male teacher needs to check his fucking privilege…he told me that being a prostitute is not a good job, but guess what, I am going to be a fucking prostitute. My whole family are prostitutes, my dad was a prostitute, my mom was a prostitute, and my sister is still a prostitute. I will carry on the glorious prostitute bloodline.

This exam calculator is a beautiful, beautiful app and you are a beautiful, beautiful man. I could easily do this math myself, but I don't get the wonderful, positive comments.

Roger: Glad you like it!

If I have a 90.26 in my psychology class and I fail the final exam witch is 20% could I still pass the class with a C.

Roger: Yep. If you get a zero on your final exam, your overall grade should drop to a 72.2%.

Despite common belief, Jeffery Dahmer was gay so we cannot discriminate and accuse him of actions such as cannibalism or necrophilia as he could not control himself due to his homosexuality.

Ok so i have a 53 in my my math class which i hate i have 2 test coming up one is 15 and the other which is my final is 18 i need a 70 to pass plus im doing some extra credit that will probably bring my grade up to a 60 at the most what do you think i should get on the test to pass

Roger: Ignoring the extra credit, you’d need to average at least a 104.5% on your upcoming test and final exam to raise your grade to a 70%. Every percentage point of extra credit will lower that requirement by about 3.0%. If your extra credit can raise your 53% to a 60%, then that would be 4.7% of extra credit (e.g. 7% × 67%, because your current overall grade only represents about two-thirds of your entire course grade). In that case, you’d only need to average a 90.3% on your upcoming test and final exam.

Mon Dec 12 2016 06:29:24 +0000

Thank you for everything you have done.

Sun Dec 11 2016 18:06:52 +0000

Hi Roger! I have a 66.43% in a class right now. There is an assignment and final left in the class right now to turn in. The assignment is worth 12% and the final is worth 22%. What do I need to get on both to achieve a 72% overall??

Roger: You’ll need to average at least a 82.8% on your assignment and final exam to get a 72% overall.

Sat Dec 10 2016 19:26:44 +0000

If i fail a 300 point project and my grade is a B (83%) will it drop down to a F

Roger: How many points do you have total?

okay Thank you! Well, now I got my homework percentage up to a 80%. So if that's still 10% of my grade. and I have an 88% in Tests which is worth 60% of my overall grade. And my final is worth 30% of my grade. What do I need to score on my final to get a B?

Roger: Your current overall grade is a 86.9%. You’ll need to get at least a 64.0% on your final to get a 80% overall. If you want a 90% overall, you’ll need to score at least a 97.3% on your final.

Thu Dec 08 2016 06:15:42 +0000

Assuming that an A for you is a least 90%, you need to make a 100.69% on your final. Good luck!

Hello Rodger I have an 88% in Tests which is worth 60% of my overall grade. I have a 70% in homework which is worth 10% of my overall grade. And my final is worth 30% of my grade. What do I need to score on my final to get an A in the class?

Roger: Your current overall grade is a 85.4%. You’ll need to score at least a 100.7% on your final exam to get a 90% overall.

Wed Dec 07 2016 19:20:29 +0000

I go to college and I have a sociology class.
In that class I have a percentage of 29.67% i have my final exam tomorrow and was wondering if I score 100% on my final exam would that bring my grade up to at least a D or C or would it still be low? Exam is 20% of my grade.

Roger: If you get 100% on your final exam, your overall grade should go up to a 43.7%.

Everyone at my school talks about roger during this time of year! I have a question. If you go to UC Berkeley, just how hard is it to switch to engineering school? Currently I'm applying to letters and sciences? Did you know anyone who did that?

Roger: It’s easier if you’re an ethnic minority or a girl. Switching to the College of Engineering doesn’t actually change much. You’re forced to take Physics and some EE, your humanities requirements are a little different, and your diploma says “Bachelors of Science”. But students in both tracks take basically the same classes. One advantage of enrolling in the College of Engineering is that L&S students need to meet a certain GPA threshold in order to declare a Computer Science major. If you don’t meet the threshold, you’ll have to pick a less crowded department.

Mon Dec 05 2016 21:27:33 +0000

BP, you'll need a 73.91% on your final to get an 80% overall.

Mon Dec 05 2016 17:19:22 +0000

I have an 80.3% in the class. The 4 tests are worth 15% each, for a total of 60% of the grade. My 4 test grades are 88, 83, 77, 60. The professor is going to replace the lowest test grade with the final exam grade, if better. The final exam is also worth 25% of the grade. What do I need on the final for an 80% in the class? Thank you.

Roger: I’ll assume you have a 15% “homework” category and your current homework average is 93.5%. Eliminating your lowest test score would bring your overall grade up to a 84.8%. (It’d also be equally valid to say that your overall grade would go up to a 85.4%, depending on how you interpret incomplete categories.) In either case, you’ll need to score at least a 71.9% on your final exam to get a 80% overall. Good luck!

Fri Dec 02 2016 19:45:49 +0000

I have at 68 right now and my final is 20% . What do I need to make to get a 80 in the class

Roger: You’ll need at least a 128% on your final to get a 80% overall.

Thu Dec 01 2016 21:20:56 +0000

Hey roger I have a grade a
Of 90.1% and there was this project that was worth 100 points. I did not do the project that was 100 points what do you think my grade is now. Please respond thanks

Roger: It depends on how many points you have total.
