Hi I'm having a problem with my code not computing correct values.  There is a weighted score that computes a .7 * exam + .3 * lab.  It is not functioning properly someone please tell me why the results are off.

Here's the code for the program.
#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>

using namespace std;
#define max 100

int getExamScores(int, double*);
int getLabScores(int, double*);
int getTotalStudentCount();

void calculatePointGrades(double[], int, double[]);
void calculateLetterGrades(int, double[]);
void showGradeData(int);

double examGrade[max];
double labGrade[max];
double pointGrade[max];

char letterGrade[max];

void main()
{
	int numStudents;
	numStudents = getTotalStudentCount();
	getExamScores(numStudents, examGrade);
	getLabScores(numStudents, labGrade);
	calculatePointGrades(examGrade, numStudents, labGrade);
	calculateLetterGrades(numStudents, pointGrade);
	showGradeData(numStudents);
	cin.ignore(2);
}

//asks the user to enter the number of students and returns the value entered.
int getTotalStudentCount()
{
	int totalStudentCount;
	cout << "Please enter the number of students: ";
	cin>>totalStudentCount;

	cout << endl;

	return totalStudentCount;
}

//receives the number of students and the name of one-dimensional integer array to store the scores entered 
//by the user.  It should include the student number in the prompt to enter each exam score.
int getExamScores (int totalStudentCount , double *Grade)
{
	cout << endl;

	for (int student = 0; student < totalStudentCount; ++student)
	{
		cout << "Enter the exam grade for student " <<  student + 1 << ": ";
		cin >> *Grade;
		Grade++;
	}

	cout << endl;
	return 0;
}

//receives the number of students and the name of one-dimensional array to store the floating point 
//lab average scores entered by the user.  It should include the student number in the prompt to enter each score.
int getLabScores (int totalStudentCount , double *Grade)   
{
	cout << endl;
	for (int student = 0; student < totalStudentCount; ++student)
	{
		cout << "enter the lab grade for student " <<  student + 1 << ": ";
		cin >> *Grade;
		Grade++;
	}
	cout << endl;


	return 0;
}

//receives the two arrays of scores (for the exam and lab average), the number of students and the 
//name of a one-dimensional array into which the calculated point grades are to be stored.
void calculatePointGrades(double labGrade[],int totalStudentCount, double examGrade[])  
{
	for (int student = 0; student < totalStudentCount; student++)
	{
		pointGrade[student] = (.7 * examGrade[student]) + (.3 * labGrade[student]);
	}
}

//receives the point grades array, the number of students, and the name of a one-dimensional array(pointGrade) of 
//characters to store the letter grades (as determined by each student’s point grade)
void calculateLetterGrades(int totalStudentCount, double pointGrade[])  
{
	for (int student = 0; student < totalStudentCount; ++student)
	{
		if(pointGrade[student]>=90)
			letterGrade[student]='A';
		else if(pointGrade[student] >= 80 && pointGrade[student] < 90)

		else if(pointGrade[student] >= 60 && pointGrade[student] < 70)
			letterGrade[student]='D';
		else
			letterGrade[student]='F';
	}
}

//to display the table as shown in Figure 1 and the overall averages for exam, lab scores and point scores
void showGradeData(int totalStudentCount) 
{
	double examGradeTotal = 0, labGradeTotal = 0.0, pointTotal = 0.0;

	cout << "-----------------------------------------------------------------" << endl;
	for(int student = 0; student < totalStudentCount; student++)
	{
		cout << "|" << setw(3) << student + 1 << setw(15) << examGrade[student] << setw(15) << labGrade[student] << setw(15) << pointGrade[student] << setw(10) << letterGrade[student] << setw(6) << "|" << endl;

		examGradeTotal = examGradeTotal + examGrade[student];
		labGradeTotal = labGradeTotal + labGrade[student];
		pointTotal = pointTotal + pointGrade[student];
	}
	cout << "-----------------------------------------------------------------" << endl;

	examGradeAvg = (double)examGradeTotal / totalStudentCount;
	labGradeAvg = labGradeTotal / totalStudentCount;
	pointScoreAvg = pointTotal / totalStudentCount;

	cout << "\n\n Exam Average        : " << examGradeAvg;
	cout << "\n Lab Average Average : " << labGradeAvg;
	cout << "\n Point Score Average : " << pointScoreAvg;
}
