# Is 18 out of 30 points a passing grade?

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### If you have a 52 percent in science and the exam is worth 30 percent how much do you need to pass to get 50 and over?

If 50 is passing: right now the contribution towards the total
grade is (.70)*52, so the total grade = (.70)*52 + (.30)*E [for the
final exam grade]. If the target is 50 for the total grade, then 50
= (.70)*52 + (.30)*E, and solve for E = (50 - (.70)*52)/(.30) =
45.3333, so a grade of 46 would put the final grade over 50. By the
way, the maximum possible grade of a 100 on the final will result
in 66.4 for the total grade.

### What grade is a 62 percent on an exam?

62 percent regardless of the overall of the test still means you
only got a little over half the questions right if it was a 100
point test it would be 62 grade for 62 right points if it were say
150 you would have gotten 95 points correct its easier for them to
show you a percent which is if you had 4 tests and 2 were 150
points and 2 100 all were 30 percent of you final grade would not
be added totaled then div. by four like high school if all four
were 2 62's and 2 95's your final percent/grade is still 62 which
means 30 x .62 gives you 18.6% for your 30% you need of your final
grade still your grade is going to be a D for that percentage.

### How do you calculate your GPA?

A = 4 B = 3 C = 2 D = 1 Fail = 0
Assign a number to each class/grade by multiplying the credit
hours of the class by the number associated with the grade. In
other words, if you received an "A" in a math class that is
considered to be 4 credit hours, you'd multiply 4 credit hours
times 4 for the "A", giving you 16 grade points for the class. Keep
one column that will be the total of the credit hours and another
column that is the total of the grade points. After you've
calculated the grade points and credit hours for each class, add
both columns and divide the total of the grade points by the total
of the credit hours.
For example, if you have 100 grade points and 30 credit hours,
your grade point average will be 3.33. If you did it right, the
total cannot be above 4, and only then if you've received straight
"A" grades.
Grade Point Average (GPA)
Calculation
Divide the total number of grade points passed/earned by the total
number of class hours to determine the GPA.
For example, using a 4-point grading scale,
A = 4 points
B = 3 points
C = 2 points
D = 1 point
F = 0 points
and a 15 semester hour system:
An "A" in a 3-hour Math class would be worth 12 grade
points.
A "B" in a 3-hour English class would yield 9 grade points.
Another "A" in a 4-hour Biology class would earn 16 grade
points.
An "F" in a 2-hour Sociology class is not worth any (0) grade
points.
Latin's 3-hour C provides 6 grade points.
The total number of grade points (43) divided by the total
number of class hours (15) is the grade point average: 2.866666....
or 2.87 which is a high "C", "C+" or "B-" according to who
interprets it.

###### Asked in Grades and Grade Point Averages (GPA)

### What is a GPA of 2.5?

Based on a 4.0 scale a 2.5 GPA (Grade Point Average) is
typically associated the letter grade of "C". The 2.5 is a ratio
which was derived by a the total grade points attempted (typically
the credit hours of the class) divide by a summation of the grade
points achieved (passed). This is also known as an improper
fraction depending on how well or poorly the student performed.
For example if you took four (4) three (3) credit hours class
one is attempting twelve (12) grade points; each class independent
there are a number of ways to 'achieve' a 2.5 GPA. For example:
History letter grade "A" --> 4 Grade Pts * 3 Hrs = 12
Biology letter grade "C" --> 2 Grade Pts * 3 Hrs = 06
Math letter grade "F" --> 0 Grade Pts * 3 Hrs = 00
English letter grade "A" --> 4 Grade Pts * 3 Hrs = 12
-----------------------------------------------------
TOTALS: Attempted 12 | Earned 30
-----------------------------------------------------
GPA = Attempted / Earned thus 30 / 12 = 2.5
