The final grade is the simple average of 4 components. As each component is evaluated on the 100-point scale (without rounding to the nearest integer), the final grade is first obtained as a continuous number on the 100-point scale (not rounded to an integer) and then converted to the 10-point according to the rules for converting the 100-point scale final grade to the 10-point scale: [95,100)=10 [90,95)=9, [80,90)=8, [70,80)=7, [60,70)=6, [50,60)=5, [40,50)=4, [30,40)=3, [20,30)=2, [10,20)=1, [0,10)=0
