How to Calculate What Final Exam Grade You Need

Your final exam can make up a large portion of your grade, so it’s important to know what impact it can have. Without knowing the final exam’s impact, it can be difficult to determine what grade you’ll end up with in the class you’re taking and how this will influence your overall GPA.


With our Final Grade Calculator, you can calculate what grade you need on the final exam to get the grade that you want in the class. This will give you a better idea of how much studying and preparation you need to do in order to get your desired grade.


To use the calculator, enter your current grade in the class, your desired grade in the class, and the weight of the final exam. The weight of the final exam, or how much of your grade it’s worth, can usually be found in your course syllabus.
