If my average is a 59 what grade on a test do i need to get to bump it up to a 65

That depends on two things. First, it depends on how many grades are included in the average. Second, it depends on if the test scores are weighted. In other words, a daily assignment might be counted once, but a test score might be more valuable - maybe counted twice.

It depends on how much the test counts toward a final grade.

what do u mean

You'd need to find out what percentage of your overall grade this test will count for. Then you'd need to do a little algebra.

(0.5)(59) + (0.5)T = 65
29.5 + (0.5)T = 65
(0.5)T = 65 - 29.5 = 35.5
T = 71

(0.8)(59) + (0.2)T = 65
47.2 + (0.2)T = 65
(0,2)T = 65 - 47.2 = 17.8
T = 89

And it depends in how much you are prepared. Set your goal higher and then you eon't need to worry about 'just getting by'.

I don't get the question. Why bump a 59 just to a 65? It's still a F

It depends on the school system. In our school, 65% is a D.
Report as
Oh wow. I have seen a lot of ppl on here say that they get Ds. We haven't had a D in the school system here since the 70s.

Well, we're behind times here in the Ozarks! :)

Thats surprising because Georgia seems to always be behind times. Well thats what most think.
Report as
I hear jokes about the south, but I hear just as many about the Ozarks being slow. I think most areas just think they need to put down somewhere else so they'll look better.

If you have to ask, don't worry about it, because you'll never do it!!!
