It is possible for you to predict your final grade going into a final exam or assignment for a particular course. This can also help you to prioritize your studies for each course and estimate the mark you will need on your final paper(s) or exam(s) to get the overall grade you desire in the course.
To calculate your final grade, you could use an online application like Ben Eggleston—Grade Calculator or Grade Calc. Here’s how they work:
- Input the assignment/exam weight, which is outlined on your course syllabus, and the mark that you received on that particular assignment or exam,
- Repeat that step for every assignment that you’ve received thus far,
- Input the weight of the final exam/assignment,
- Input the final grade you hope to achieve in the course, and voila!
Of course, these are just predictions and ways of goal setting. Your marks are not official until they are posted on ACORN.
