Now, this is exactly how you will be graded on your stories, but if I feel that in some places you got a in between grade, lets say you got between a 50 and a 25 you will have a mixed grade that will not be even, so some scores may be odd numbers and some may be even. If you have anymore question please feel free to ask. Good luck.
