If your luggage is over the limitation, you will need to pay for the excess weight.

Tips: If you are traveling together in group, you can use your allowance together. For example, if you have 35kg, your friend have only 5kg, it will be fine as long as you two check in together. This method also applies to more people within one group, as long as you are checking in at the same time over the airport counter.
