    Can somebody help me correct these sentences?

    1) The final exam will be 10%, so how does the teacher calculate the 10%?
    2) The final exam is 10%, so how will the 10% be determined/computed/judge?

    Ten percent of what?
    Before correcting the sentences, we must know exactly what you want them to mean.

    Some shots:
    The final exam weight will be 10%.
    The final exam contributes with 10% to the final note.
    The final exam weights 10% but how should one calculate the final average?

    The final exam contributes with 10% to the final note.
    final mark you mean?

    I agree that percentage is relative. It is meaningless to say 10% without any reference to sometime else.
