    Current grade = 72 = 80% of final grade

    Exam = X = 20% of final grade

    72 * 0.8 = 57.6 (this is your current grade and if you get 0 on exam)

    70 is passing score I'm guessing, so you'd need 12.4 more points.

    so work backwards

    12.4 / 0.2 = 62

    You would need a 62 to get that 12.4 points to pass at a 70.

    Get the best possible marks/aspects/grades you would get in that exam, divide it by way of a hundred and then multiply that with the aid of 20. For illustration, complete quantity in the exam is 62/a hundred = 0.Sixty two zero.62 x 20 = 12.4% of total points/marks

    depends on what grade is a passing grade? 65? 70?
