Ive started with this program

def calcFinal():
while True:
asg1Mark = int(raw_input("Enter Asg1 mark: "))
asg2Mark = int(raw_input("Enter Asg2 mark: "))
examMark = int(raw_input("Enter Exam mark: "))
final = asg1Mark + asg2Mark + examMark
return final
except ValueError:
print 'Please enter only numbers'

def mark_check(finalMark):
print "Final mark is %d, grade is" % finalMark,
if finalMark < 50:
print "Sorry, You have Fail"
elif finalMark <= 65:
print "You Passed. Well done"
elif finalMark <= 75:
print "You have earned a Credit :-) "
elif finalMark <= 85:
print "Distinction !!!"
elif finalMark >= 85:
print "Congrats you have earned an High Distinction"
print "Invaild selction has been entered. Please try again"

def main():
finalMark = calcFinal()

if __name__ == "__main__":

A student MUST pass the final exam in order to pass the unit. Furthermore, if a student passes the exam, but fails the unit by not more than 5% of the total assessment, they are offered an AA – a chance to pass the unit by resubmitting an assignment and attaining a nominated standard.
Similarly, if a student fails the exam, but their total marks are within 5% of a passing grade, they are offered an AE – a chance to resit the exam and attain a passing grade.

What would be the best to approach this question
would it be to create another loop ??

Any help would be great

At the very least you should test a program before posting the code here. If you test the code posted I think you will find that it does not work as one would expect it to.

if a student passes the exam, but fails the unit by not more than 5% of the total assessment,

You are going to find the difference between the student's grade and the total assessment.
