Question for maths buffs

I'm really really bad at maths, so one of my modules is split into 2 assignments, one worth 40% of the module and the other worth 60%. If I got 63% on the assignment worth 40% and 57% on the assignment worth 60% then what did I get for the total module?

    How annoying, I hope the round it up and give me a 2:1!

    To be fair just try and get 2:1's on most of your modules, that's what carries the biggest sway I think rather than an average...

    Very helpful after the event.

    Most universities calculate final result based on a mean average but will sometimes moderate up a grade if there's good reason to - usually by a viva (oral exam)
