Let's do the math

On Friday I picked up my sixth and last journal, which got an A. My average journal grade (weighted by the number of articles in each journal) is therefore between 79% and 90%, or between 7.8 and 8.4 grade points - crudely, it's an A. After throwing in my first essay I'm averaging 76% to 82%, or 7.3 grade points, an A- for the whole course.

Far be it from me to guess how sociology lecturers really average across letter grades (especially given that they may have recorded actual percentage marks that we know nothing about), but basically, if I get an A in the last essay then I'll probably get an A for the course. If I get an A+ for the last essay then I'll definitely get an A for the course. It's pretty unlikely at this juncture that I'll get an A+ for the whole course - I don't think they scale internally assessed work that much.
