# How is the average grade of a middle grade calculated?

In many cases, the calculation of the average mark of a student in a course is reduced to the arithmetic mean of the marks of all the subjects. However, there are times when it is necessary to use another type of calculation, such as the weighted average grade.

The weighted average grade is calculated based on the relative importance of each subject in the course. Thus, each subject is assigned a weighting based on its importance and then the arithmetic mean of the grades of all the subjects is calculated taking these weights into account.

For example, let's imagine that we are in a mathematics course in which it is evaluated with a final test and a control test. The control grade will be 40% of the final grade and the final test grade 60%. In this case, the weighting of the subject would be:

Weighting of the subject = (40% x Mark of the control) + (60% x Mark of the final test)

## How do you qualify in FP?

Vocational Training (FP) students receive a **numerical grade** in each of the subjects they take, **from 0 to 10** . The average grade is calculated **taking into account all the subjects** that the student has taken in a training cycle.

The **final qualification** of a training cycle is obtained from the **arithmetic mean** of the qualifications of all the subjects that compose it.

To pass a training cycle, the student must obtain a **minimum grade of 5** in each of the subjects and an **average grade of 5** in all of them.

In some cases, a **minimum grade of 6** is established in certain subjects.

Students who do not pass a subject can **take it again** in a **new course** . If the subject was taken in a **training cycle of one year** , the student will have to take it again in the **same year** . If the subject was taken in a **two-year training cycle** , the student may take it again in the **following year** .

Students who do not pass a training cycle can **take it again** . If the training cycle lasts **one year** , the student will have to take it again in the **same year** . If the training cycle lasts **two years** , the student may take it again in the **following academic year** .

Vocational Training students can **obtain a scholarship to study a ****second-year** training cycle if they pass the **first year** with an average grade equal to or greater than **7** .

## How to calculate the Selectivity note from FP

The Selectivity grade is calculated from the average grade of the last two Vocational Training courses. To do this, the grades of the two courses are added and divided by two.

For example, if the average grade for the first course is a 7 and that of the second is an 8, the average grade will be 7.5.

In the event that the average grade of the first course is a 6 and that of the second a 7, the average grade will be 6.5.

## How is the average mark of the entrance exams to higher grade calculated?

The average mark of the entrance exams to higher grade is calculated by multiplying the mark obtained in each subject by the number of credits of the same and dividing the result between the number of credits of all the subjects.

For example, if a student has obtained the following marks in the subjects of mathematics, physics and chemistry:

- Mathematics: 9
- Physics: 8
- Chemistry: 7

The average grade will be:

(9 x 6) + (8 x 4) + (7 x 4) / (6 + 4 + 4) = 8.4

### How the cut-off mark is calculated

The cut-off grade is the minimum grade necessary to access a place at a university, higher education center or specialized education, according to the admission system of each country. In Spain, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports annually publishes the cut-off marks for the degrees offered at Spanish public universities.

To calculate the cut-off mark, the number of vacancies offered, the number of applications submitted and the academic record of the candidates are taken into account. In Spain, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports annually publishes the cut-off marks for the degrees offered at Spanish public universities.

The cut-off mark may vary depending on the call, since the number of vacancies offered and the number of applications submitted may vary from year to year. Likewise, the cut-off mark may vary depending on the center, since each university establishes its own selection criteria.

To calculate the cut-off mark, the number of vacancies offered, the number of applications submitted and the academic record of the candidates are taken into account.

To calculate the average grade for an average grade, the number of subjects that have been taken and the grade obtained in each of them must be taken into account. The total grades are then divided by the number of subjects and the average grade is obtained.
