How can I get an A in OCR A2 History

    I just made a B in my AS exams, I'm not sure what mark it was but I just scraped it.

    If I get high Bs or Low As in my coursework, and a high A or even an A* in the exam will I be able to secure an A overall?

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here. :dumbells:

    What UMS did you get?

    I do OCR A level History, and you can work out what you need (sorta) from previous grade boundaries. (http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/246983-...ludes-gcse.pdf)

    Scroll down to the history section, and then work it out. An A is 320 UMS.

    So, in my case, I got 163 UMS in my AS (scraping that A), to get an A overall this year I will need 157 UMS, which is the high high end of a B (so I basically need an A to get an A overall). But lets say you got around 145 UMS, then you would need 175 UMS, out of a possible 200, which would be difficult, but not impossible!
