## How do you calculate percentages for grades?

Calculate the percentage you earned on one specific grade. To do this, take the total number of points you earned on the assignment and divide by the number of points the assignment was worth. If, for example, you earned 38 points out of a total possible 50 points, then your percentage is 76, as shown here: 38 / 50 = .

## How do I calculate my final grade percentage?

All you have to do is convert the percentage the assignment is worth into a decimal and multiply that by your grade. To convert, just divide the percentage of your final grade the assignment represents by 100. So your 10 percent assignments turn into a weighted factor of 10 / 100 = 0.1, and your exam is 50 / 100 = 0.5.

## Is 80% an A grade?

But actually, it means a distinction grade….Honors Degree Grading.GradeGrade NamePercentage (%)H1First Class Honours80 and aboveH2ASecond Class Honours – A Division74 to 79H2BSecond Class Honours – B Division70 to 74H3Third Class Honours65 to 692

## Is 50 pass or fail?

P (Pass): equal to 50 to 64% F (Fail): equal to 49% or under, which means: get out!

## Is 50% an F?

A – is the highest grade you can receive on an assignment, and it’s between 90% and 100% B – is still a pretty good grade! D – this is still a passing grade, and it’s between 59% and 69% F – this is a failing grade.

It depends on the situation. A 78 on a test in high school isn’t that bad. You can bounce back from that to a better grade. A 78 as an overall grade for the semester is bad in almost all cases except maybe a class like organic chemistry at a top 50 University.

75 is not a horrible grade, it’s an ok grade. You can improve by paying close attention in class and making sure you understand the concepts. Sit in the front of the class if you can.
