    I want to estimate what I need to get in my exam unit as I work well when I have a target even if it is just an estimate.

    I am studying OCR A-LEVEL ENGLISH LITERATURE and have an A at AS-LEVEL.

    I estimate that my coursework was 36/40 RAW MARKS. What do I need to get in the exam for an A* in RAW MARKS?

    Impossible to say as the raw mark to UMS mark conversion will depend on how hard the exam is considered to be. You can look at past years to get an idea of the trend though.
