## How do you figure out your grade when things are weighted differently?

All you have to do is convert the percentage the assignment is worth into a decimal and multiply that by your grade. To convert, just divide the percentage of your final grade the assignment represents by 100. So your 10 percent assignments turn into a weighted factor of 10 / 100 = 0.1, and your exam is 50 / 100 = 0.5.

## What does a weighted grade mean?

Weighted grades are number or letter grades that are assigned a numerical advantage when calculating a grade point average, or GPA. In some weighted-grade systems, for example, a grade in a higher-level course may have a weight of 1.05, while the same grade in a lower-level course has a weight of 1.0.
