What I need on an exam to pass a course?

Okay, so today was the last day of school for me and then I have exams, my first being this Thursday for Science. What I wanted to know is what mark I needed on the exam in order to pass my science exam. Right now I have a 63% going in to it and the exam itself is worth 15%. If anyone could answer this question it would be appreciated.

Pce.

    well I'm not going to do the calculations for you. but on your calculator, multiply 63(.85) then put the score that you desire on the test multiplied by .15. Add the two answers together and you should find out how low of a grade you should get to get at least a 60%

    I don't know what a passing grade is in your state or country, but assuming it is 50% that means you already passed son.

    Currently your grade is 53.55 out of 85.

    So if passing is 65% you need over 76.34% on the exam.

    If passing is 60% all you need is 43% on the exam.

    It depends on what the passing mark is for your class is.

    Here's a breakdown:

    Score a 60% on the test, you'll receive a 62.55% for your final grade.

    Score a 65% on the test, you'll receive a 63.3% for your final grade.

    Score a 70% on the test, you'll receive a 64.05% for your final grade.

    Score a 75% on the test, you'll receive a 64.8% for your final grade.

    Score a 80% on the test, you'll receive a 65.55% for your final grade.

    Score a 85% on the test, you'll receive a 66.3% for your final grade.

    Score a 90% on the test, you'll receive a 67.05% for your final grade.

    Score a 95% on the test, you'll receive a 67.8% for your final grade.

    Score a 100% on the test, you'll receive a 68.55% for your final grade.
