How to calculate the minimum mark to pass a module

Say for example you obtain 28 out of 50 for your quiz.

STEP 1: Re-calculate to a mark out of 30 (because 30% of the quiz mark counts for the final mark)

28 x 30 ÷ 50 = 17 out of 30

The final mark to pass is 50 out of 100.

Step 2: Re-calculate your examination mark to a mark out of 70 (because 70% of the examination mark counts for the final mark)

50 (pass mark) – 17 (quiz mark) = 33 out of 70.

Step 3: Calculate the final exam mark out of 100:

33 x 100 ÷ 70 = 47 out of 100

Therefore a learner with a quiz mark of 28 (out of 50) will need at least 47 out of 100 for the examination paper to pass the module.
