Question

Hi!!! This is a follow on my last question, which I realized I had not given enough information!! Anyways I want to know what is the lowest grade I can get on a summative 100pt test and still have an A in the class ..

My formative category is worth 45% (of my grade) I have a 181.0 / 193.0, which is a 93.8%

My Homwork category is worth 5% (of my grade) I have a 55.0 / 55.0 which is a 100%

My summative category is worth 50% (of my grade) i have 226.1 / 245.0 which is a 92.3%
I have an overall grade of a 93.3%
Thank you again!!

Still can't answer as i don't know what the cut % for an A is. Also mystified by why you want
to know this and disgusted because you describe an absolutely appalling 1950's style
grading policy. Grades should be 100% from summative assessments and should never
include homework. I can accept 80/20 as a transition from traditional but never more than
20 for FA as a waypoint on the way to 0 FA.
