Calculate Final Grade
Calculate Final Total Grade
Are you looking for a Final Grade Calculator to find what you will achieve in your final exam? This is the right place to do the final grade calculations. Also, this tool will save time and give accurate results. Even more, it calculates the grades very quickly. Therefore, you just need to enter some numbers inside the text boxes and get the results.
How does Final Grade Calculator Work?
Generally, most of the school or semester class grades are made in a few categories. Such as classwork, homework, mid tests, quizzes, secondary exam, and final exams. So, each category is worth overall grade calculation. If you score in all these categories, you can achieve a better score in your final exam.
When you calculate your current overall grades, the final exam score will not be included in that. Therefore you need to calculate the minimum grade that you need to score in your final exam. So, you can get better results in the final exam. That’s why you need to use this calculator to know how much minimum grades you need to take.
The mechanism behind this tool is:
The final grade is equal to the required grade minus, subtraction of 100% and final exam weight(w), multiply by current grade, and whole result divide by final exam weight(w).
Final Grade =
( Required Grade – (100% − Final Exam Weight(w)) x Current Grade) / Final Exam Weight(w)
It’s not that complicated science formula. It is just a simple mathematical equation. Also, you can apply this formula in any normal calculator. But in this tool, you don’t need to keep the manual calculation. It will automatically calculate and gives you the exact results.
Now, let’s take some examples and understand the formula deeply.
Final Grade Calculation
Your current grade = 75% (or B-).
Final exam weight = 40%
The estimated grade = 85% (or A-)
Finally, the calculation is as below.
Final School Exam Grade =
= [ Estimated Grade – (100% – W) x Current Grade ] / W
= ( 85% – (100% – 40%) x 75% ) / 40% = 100%
So, the final exam grade should be 100% (or A+).
Let’s take 3 assignments in this example.
1) weight1 = 40%, grade1 = 17 out of 20.
2) weight2 = 20%, max grade = 40.
3) weight3 = 25%, max grade = 50.
So, now let’s find the average grade in assignment 2 and assignment 3 needed to get a class grade of 90%.
Current grade = Assignment 1 grade = grade1 / max grade1 = 17/20 = 0.85 = 85%
Estimated grade = 90%
Final exam weight = W = weight2 + weight3 = 20% + 25% = 45%
Final grade =
= ( Estimated grade – (100% – W) x current grade ) / W
= ( 90% – (100% – 40%) x 85% ) / 40% = 97.5%
So, finally, you have got the final grade calculator results. And the final grade you can achieve is 97.5%.
Even more, you can calculate assignments 2 and 3 grades in the same manner.
Assignment 2 grade = 97.5% x max grade = 97.5% x 40 = 39
Assignment 3 grade = 97.5% x max grade = 97.5% x 50 = 48.75
