This Weighted Grade Calculator is intended to help you estimate your quarter or semester grade as the weighted average of your test and quiz grade. It assumes each grade counts differently (usually some kind of points system) and you enter this weighting as a second number. This weighted average grade calculator tallys up the total score, weighted by the second factor. Thus, grades with a lot of points will count more significantly towards the total than grades with few points.

Simple. We aggregate the grades / scores entered in the weighted grade calculator and average them by the weights. Note that you don't have to have each weight as a percentage. The weighted grade calculator is able to use other schemes (so points, or a weighting system which doesn't tally to 100 percent is fine - the weighted grade calculator uses the sum of the weights to solve for a grade). This is common for courses with a final exam, which often has a large impact on course grade (and thus, your grade point average).
You can use the weighted grade calculator to calculate your weighted gpa as well. Check the number of points each letter grade contributes to your overall gpa, use that as your grade (so A = 4 points, B = 3 points, + / - grades usually are 0.3 points added or subtracted) and give each grade a weight of 1. If a certain class counts for more or less (such as a 1.5 credit class with extra periods or a .5 credit elective course), increase or decrease the weights accordingly. The result will be your weighted gpa.
Certain schools may adjust your cumulative gpa calculation for other factors such as honor course, credit hours, or course difficulty. These may get a bonus on the gpa scale (and semester gpa). You can adjust entries into the gpa calculator to reflect this (raise grade or increase the weighting).
You can solve for this with a grade average calculator. Mathematically, your grade will improved based on the share of your final grade which that test accounts for and the difference between your current average grade and the 100 point score. So if you have an average of 80 in the course and earn a 100 on the final that counts for 50%, your grade will improve: (100 - 80 => 20 points x (50/100) => 10 points.
Report card grading is calculated based on the score ranges specific to your school. A score should be calculated for each course, converted into a letter grade, and that is your report card grade.
Divide your numeric class rank (21st, for example) with the total number of students in your class (210 students. The result if your percentage class rank.
It reduces it, obviously. If you have the opportunity to drop a class or withdrawing with minimal penalties, we recommend doing so. Note that you usually must pass any required courses for your major, so if that is your situation, speak with a counselor first.
First, don't panic. We recommend a careful review of all work done to date to see where there are opportunities to recover lost points. You should reach out to your professor for a meeting. Beyond that, identify the remaining assignments and focus your efforts to earn as many points as possible. You should balance your time between doing "sufficient work" in assignments where there isn't much opportunity for extra points and trying to "knock it out of the park" for easier tests and projects that you can earn extra points for.
Fixing poor assignment grade situations is often a quick way to rebuild a class grade (plus this also positions you to do better on the final exam). While the grading system may make it hard to get your desired grade, particularly at the college student level, this may earn you enough total points to bump your current grade up to the next level (grade category). The good news is most professors would rather pass a student, so showing up to ask for help is the first step towards saving your current gpa.
Generally anything above a 90, although many institutions consider 90 - 93 an A- grade.
