Each total raw score must be converted into equivalent percentage by using the following formula:
Period Exam
= 1/3 of the grades
Class Standing (CS)
= 2/3 of the grades
3. Formula:
Prelim Grade
= CS
X 2 + Prelim Exam
3
Midterm Grade
= CS
X 2 + Midterm Exam + Prelim Grade

-------------------------------------------------------------2
Semi Final Grade
= CS X 2 + Semi final Exam + Midterm Grade
