Test Grade Calculator
Welcome to the test grade calculator. With this tool, you'll be able to calculate:
- The grading scale
- The letter grade;
- The Grade percentage; and
- The number of questions and wrong and correct answers, given two of them.
Additionally, if you click on the advanced mode, you can change your grading scale and create your custom scale.
Your grades obtained can influence your academic future and open the possibility of winning a scholarship instead of taking a student loan. For this reason, we've created this calculator.
As we'll see in the next section, to calculate exam percentages, we'll 'just need a simple formula and not a quadratic formula, quantum mechanics, or any other complicated stuff.
How to calculate grade the percentage
The formula to calculate a test grade percentage is simple. It only requires dividing the number of correct answers ✔️ by the total number of questions ❔
grade percentage = #correct / #total
#correct + #wrong = #total, we can write the equation also as:
percentage score = (#total - #wrong) / #total
🙋 The previous formulas give the grade percentage as a fraction. To convert it to a pure percentage, multiply it by 100%. For example, if you obtained 20 right answers out of 25, the grade percentage equals a 20/25 = 0.8 in fraction percentage, and 100% × 0.8 = 80% (eighty percent) in percentage notation.
With the grade percentage, we can calculate the exam grade letter, as we'll see in the following section.
