After creating bot, we will use ‘If’ package to calculate result based on percentage like-

  • >=75% : Pass with Distinction
  • >=33% and Above to < 75% : Only Pass
  • < 33% : Fail

And for this we will follow below steps-

  • Create Variables
    1. Create String Variable(To Store value after getting from user)
    2. Create Float Variable(To Store value after conversion)
  • Add Prompt for value(To get the value from user)
  • Convert String Variable To Number variable
  • Add If (>=75%) condition and show message ‘Pass with Distinction‘
  • Add else If (>=33% and Above to < 75% ) condition and show message ‘Only Pass’
  • Show message ‘fail’ message in else

Create Variables

Let’s create variables to store value after getting from user as string and after conversion as float.
