Redistributing weight based on performance

I receive this question from one of our instructors:

"I gave three midterms where the highest two should be 20% each and the lowest one is 10%. How could I apply that in Blackboard".


The instructor wants to redistribute a 50% Midterm category weight for each student based on the grade in each midterm exam. For each student, the exam with the lowest grade should get 10% and the rest will get 20% each. Is this possible? I know that we can drop the lowest, or the highest grade, I also know that we can redistribute the weight based on point values.
