In USM, Exam type is a set of examination under which multiple exam can be created. For example, Periodic test is a exam type under which school can take multiple periodic tests. Also school can assign weightage to a exam type. While generating report card/marksheet, weightage of an exam type will be considered out of 100 and it will be calculated after considering the marks of all periodic test exams(school can define the rule, how to calculate the marks of a exam type based on multiple examinations of that type) under this Period test exam type. If two classes has different weightage of the same exam type, then you need to create two seperate exam type with different weightage.
