will class averages mean anything in your evaluation?

I'm currently studying outside of Canada so I have just finished my grade 12th first semester mid-term.
Since I'm planning to apply for engineering, I really took extra care in science and math courses.
Chem and bio came out alright and earth-system science was pretty good too(not that it matters in applying for engineering), but the thing is one of my two math marks is expected to be slightly 'under' 70%.(possibly 69.3% or something...)
I know I should have put more effort on math and there can not be any excuses for my low mark, but still, our class average came out as 52.5. All my classmates are saying that this test was particularly difficult.
Would this fact be irrelevant with my raw score in the evaluation? Do I still have a chance if I really do better in next term or should I just move my focus to something else?
I'm really depressed over this these days and there aren't many people around to discuss it with.
I hope anyone could give me some guide line for this.
thank you for reading.

Unfortunately, class average wont matter for admissions.
Where are you applying to? If your other marks are high enough you might be ok if there's no specific requirement for math.

That's really sad. T_T I was planning to apply for SE and there is required limit of like at least 70~75% for math.
Anyway thank you for your answer. have a nice day.
