Is My Overall Grade An Average Of My Other Grades?

Our grades and rankings are based on a variety of data. Each grade has a specific methodology - while these methodologies can include other grades as factors, they do not always overlap and as such, grades are not always affected by one another. The Overall Grade has its own specific methodology, rather than being an average of the other grades shown on your report card.

Because of this, it is possible to, for example, have an A Overall Grade without having any A topic grades or a C Overall Grade without having any C topic grades.
