What the examiners will do is to take the Marks to obtain (70) divide by the total allocated marks (100). This is done to ascertain your score in theory.

After ascertaining your score in theory, then that score will be added to the marks obtain in objectives in other to get the final score in all.

Example

Marks Obatain in Theory = 70
Total Marks allocated for theory questions = 100
Total Marks Allocated for objectives = 40
Marks Obtain in Ojective = 34

Total Marks obtain By Candidate = 70 + 34
Total Allocated Marks (Both Objective & Theory) = 100 + 40

=> 104/140 X 100 = 74.3%

Going with the grading system, this candidate has obtained A1 in Elective maths.
