Step 1:  Take the marks of first column which contains assignment marks. Now calculate 30% of it. 30% of 80 Marks = 24 Marks.
Step 2 : Take the marks of “Term End Theory” from the second last column, Now calculate 70% of it. 70% of 60 Marks = 42 Marks.
Step 3 : Add both above marks , that is 24 + 42 = 66 Marks.
