Adding grades together before weighting?

I'm trying to find a way to add grades together before they are weighted.

 

For example. I have an exam that is worth 12% of the overall grade. The students take the exam and participate in a review session, for which I give points. I add those points to the grade as part of their exam score.

 

So if  student receives and 85 on the exam, and 2 points on the review, their final score is a 87. When I try to do this in Canvas, by adding two assignments to the group. It weights both scores evenly (6% to the exam and 6% to the review). This can actually cause more harm to the student than help.

 

Is there a way to get Canvas to add them together for me rather than uploading from Excel each time?

Thanks!
