Try Goal Seek in Excel to Find Out What You Need to Get an “A” in Class

This post will bring back some school memories and test anxieties perhaps. Say you have taken 5 of 6 tests and you currently have 91.32 average. In order to earn an “A” you need a minimum 90 grade average. And it is the night before you go take the final test 6. Goal seek to the rescue!

goal seek scenario

Find the goal seek command from the Data tab.

After you click the What-If-Analysis, you will find goal seek among the choices.

The three choices for goal seek include:

  • Set Cell:
  • To Value:
  • By Changing cell:

Set Cell is always going to be formula cell. In my example I have it set cell D7. This is my average formula of the 6 test grades.

To Value is what you want. In my example I have it set to equal 90.

By Changing Cell is what cell you want to change. In my example I have it set to cell D6 which represents the test 6 input grade.

Set cell to value using goal seek Excel

Click ok, watch the cells dance and examine the solution results.

Goal seek found solution

So it turns out after all that goal seek found out you need a 83.4 score to earn a 90 for the average. You got this one!
