    Hey,
    I've recently received my coursework(30%) result, and I got B/C, which was a huge disappointment, as I was really hopeing for an A*.
    Is it possible for me to get an A* over all still, if I perform very well in my final exam?
    Also, does anyone know some useful/effective history revision tips please or any advise for the exam?
    Thank you.

    It depends on your UMS points for that coursework. How many units do you have in History? You have to have at least 90% of the UMS points overall to get an A*.

    I'm not too sure about units but we've got 2 papers:
    1) Germany 1919-1945(75marks)
    2 British depth study (50 marks)

    As for the coursework, I'm not sure of the exact UMS score but I think it's between 36-37 out of 50.
    Thanks

    If you could find out how many UMS points each of your exams are worth, you could work out how many you'd need to get an A* Like I said, 90% is A*, 80% is A and so on and so forth
