"What grade do I need on my final to get...?" This final grade calculator has the answer!

This page has two grade calculators that work together or independently. For both there names pretty much say it all. The first lets you calculate your weighted grade at any point in the semester and the second lets you work out what percentage you need to get on your final to get the grade you want.

Both these calculators use percentages if your school uses marks then try the Final Mark Calculator

 first mark % % of final grade second mark % % of final grade third mark % % of final grade fourth mark % % of final grade fifth mark % % of final grade Sixth mark % % of final grade Seventh mark % % of final grade Eighth mark % % of final grade Ninth mark % % of final grade Tenth mark % % of final grade
 Weighted average so far %
 Total mark % out of a possible % of course so far

 Your weighted average so far % % Final is worth % % you want to get %
 You need % to achieve your target

## How do you calculate a grade?

To calculate your weighted grade all you need to do is multiply the mark you got in each part of your class by the percentage it is worth towards your final mark. You do the same for each part of the class and then add the answers together. For example if you got 85% on a test worth 20% of your final grade and 70% on an assignment worth 25% the sum would be (85 x 0.2) + (70 x 0.25) = 34.5% out of a possible 45%. To work out your weighted average so far you simply divide 34.5 by 45 and multiply by 100 = 76.67%.

To work out what you need on your final you use this formula:

(g1 * w1) (x * w2) = fg

where:

w1 = the amount it is worth towards final grade

w2 = the weighting of your final

fg = the final grade you want

so using the prior example, you have 76.67% from 45% of the course what mark do you need on your final to get 90% overall.

Using the formula this would be

(76.67 * 0.45) (x * 0.55) = 90

34.50 * 0.55x = 90

0.55x = 55.5

x = 55.5/ 0.55

x = 100.91.

To get 90% overall you would need 100.91% on your final and so is impossible to do.

I got a 60% on my test and it's worth 20% of my grade and I have a 73% in there. Does it bring it down to a D?

It depends how much of your grade the 73% is for. If it is the other 80% then your grade will drop to 70.4%

Posted by Sarah on Wednesday, 12.17.14 @ 19:14pm

So I received these marks in my college writing skills class... 6/10 worth 10%...59/80 worth 30%... 14.30/15 worth 15%... 5/5 worth 5%... 7.75/10 worth 10%... 24/30 worth 30%. So what is my final grade? My teacher says its 72%.

Your teacher is wrong. Doing it the old fashioned way: (6/10*0.1)+(59/80*0.3)+(14.3/15*0.15)+(5/5*0.05)+(7.75/10*0.1)+(24/30*0.3)=0.79175 = 79.175% You need to check that you've got your grades and the weightings correct and if so I suggest you talk to your teacher and point this out.

Posted by Sarah on Wednesday, 12.17.14 @ 19:09pm

Is this really accurate? I go to college in Ontario Canada and I calculated my final mark, and the mark they show on my class website is wrong. What do I do?

Yes it is.

I have an 80% in physics and my final is worth 15% of my final grade in that class. How much do i need to get on my final to get at least a 70% on the final grade?

13.33%

Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, 12.16.14 @ 20:47pm

i have a 83 %, finals are worth 20%, and i want to a 86%
so what will i have to score?

98%

Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, 12.16.14 @ 14:35pm

Ouch. I need a 102%. In all honesty, some teachers will bump you up just for showing up and volunteering to take the final. I think that may be my case. I have an 87% in the class and I so desperately want a 90 so I hope she bumps me up. It's my only chance. Thanks biology for being so awesome. Not.

Posted by chris on Monday, 12.15.14 @ 16:11pm

if i have a 91.26 in a class and want an 89.5 and my final is worth 20 percent, what do i need?

82.46%

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, 12.14.14 @ 20:57pm

I need a 60% to get a A in my art history class (less than that really if Im counting extra credit). I got this!

Cool!!

Posted by MZ on Saturday, 12.13.14 @ 20:04pm

Hi! Right now I have an 86.5% in my class. The class grade is weighted so 75%= tests, 15%=labs, 10%=creek project. I will have a 100% in my creek portion, 100% in the lab section. The final is about 150 points is put under the test category and the total amount of points in the test category right now is about 375. What percentage do I need to get on my final to bring my grade to an 89.5%?

Sorry, I don't get the marks you've listed. "Try the Mark Calculator" (link is at the top of the page) It works like this page but using marks.

If I have 85% on my class and my final is worth 20% what do I need to get if i only need 71% in the class?

15%

Posted by Carl on Thursday, 12.11.14 @ 14:04pm

if I have an 83% overall grade going into a final that's worth 30%...and lets say I did very poor on this final exam like 40%. What will be my new and final grade?

If you get 40% your final grade would be 70.1%. You can work out any permutation for this using the weighted grade calculator above (the top one). Just put 83 as your first mark and 70 as the "% of final grade". On the second mark row put 30 in the "% of final grade box". Now you can put different numbers in the second mark box to see how they would effect your final grade.

Posted by kj on Wednesday, 12.10.14 @ 23:22pm

I'm confused, if I have 73% going into the final and my final is worth 30%. How do I need -3.67 to get a 50 in the class? Wouldn't I end up getting 43 if I got a 0 on the exam?

No. If you're going into a final worth 30%, your 73% so far would be from 70% of the class. This means you've got 73 x 0.7 = 51.1%. If you get 0% on your final you will stay on 51.1%.

Posted by Vince on Tuesday, 12.9.14 @ 16:02pm

Your final grade for this class will be based on the total number of points earned from the above requirements, which total 760 points:
400 for chapter tests (4x100 points = 400)
140 for quizzes (14x10 points for syllabus & chapter quizzes = 140)
+ 140 for Discussion Board postings (1X10 points for intro post + 13x10 points for quizzes = 140)
680 points

I have a 65.2 and have one more chapter test and thats it. What will i need to get a C and or a B

If a C is over 70% and a B is over 80% (and you only have 100 points left) then you need 102points and 178points respectively. So sorry unless you can get extra credit you can't do it. However if the missing 80 points from your list are still available then you would need 154 points (C) or 230 points (B) so you could still get a C. Good Luck!

My total mark shows: 185/400=46.26%
My weighted total shows: 58.22%
grades so far: test got 50% worth 20%
test got 78% worth 20%
test got 53% worth 30%

what is my total mark in the class so far?? help!

Using those marks you've already got, your weighted average so far is 59.29%. If your class uses points you might find the Mark Calculator better. Just click the link in the top menu.

Posted by lyly~ on Thursday, 07.17.14 @ 17:19pm

HI i am really confused on how to calculate my average until now.. you said divide by 45 but what is 45? the average left?
also divide by 45 or .45? @.@ im confused..

45 is the % you have completed so far, this is to work out the weighted average so far, and yes you either / by 45 and x 100 or / by 0.45. both give the same answer.

Posted by Anonymous on Friday, 05.16.14 @ 08:48am

My quarter three grade is 72% and my quarter 4 grade is 62%. The final is worth 20% of my grade, and if I average it out, im assuming Its 67%. Would I use 67% as my average weighted and continue from there? or use 62% and jsut prepare for the worst case scenario?

As long as both quarters are worth 40% each, then yeah use the 67% as your weighted average so far

Posted by Anonymus on Friday, 05.9.14 @ 18:08pm

Thanks! I think I can get a 91.

I got a 75.6 pecent my first quater,worth 40 percent of my grade. I got a 59.9 percent second quater, worth another 40 percent of my final grade. My final is worth 20 percent of my grade. I plugged that in and it said my total mark was 54.2% but my weighted was 67.8%. which one is the real grade? im so confused

I have changed the formatting to make it more obvious.

Posted by Chrystal on Thursday, 01.16.14 @ 09:21am

okay, so my math mark is 72% so far, and I just did EQAO which is 10% will I go to a 60% if I fail EQAO?????

It depends how much of the class the 72% relates to. If you put 72 in the first box, the amount of the class in the next box (eg. 60% of class) then 0 in the second mark box with 10 as the % of final grade. This will tell you how much your grade will change.

Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, 12.24.13 @ 07:15am

How is it possible that I need 80% on a final worth 10% of my grade for my current grade -- 90% -- to drop to an 89, but I need 90% on the final to keep an A?

This is because of the way averages work. Your current grade is 90% so to keep that average you need to get the same in your final eg. 90%. this is always the case - to maintain a grade you need to get that grade. As for the small drop if you get 80% this is because the final is only worth 10% and so only has a minor effect on your grade.

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, 12.18.13 @ 15:40pm

so my teacher is getting a complete different final then this calculator is giving me

It sounds like one of you is doing something wrong. If you want to email your percentages through using the contact us link at the bottom I'll check for you.
