    So I have B grade coursework and English is my weakest subject. My exam board is WJEC. I am aiming to get at least straight As so I am focusing 30% of my revision on English. If so, how well will I have to perform in the exams?


    I believe my English literature coursework is worth 25% and my English language coursework is worth up to 30%. I also have an oral exam according to the specification but I've not heard of anything like this from my teachers?? http://www.wjec.co.uk/uploads/publications/16212.pdf

    I do the aqa exam board and my course is worth 40% for language and 25% for litetature. Both have averaged out as a B. But in iur febraury mocks i got an A* and that made my overall grade an A* for english language
