Example: Suppose your grade on the midterm is 50/60=83.3%, your grade on the final is 54/70 = 77.1%, and your grade on the presentation is 74/75 = 98.6 . Let the highest scores in the class on each exam be 58 (58/60=96.6%), 62 (62/70=88.5%), and 75/75=100% respectively. Normalizing your percentile scores by the highest percentile scores yields 83.3/96.6 = 86.2%, 77.1/88.5 = 87.1%, and 98.6/100 = 98.6. Averaging these scores is 90.6% which would be an A.
