AQA
Assuming my maths is right:
If you get a B in the exam, you'd get a C
If you get a top end B in the exam, you'd get a B
If you get a low A you'd get a B
If you get a high A you'd get a B
If you get an A* you'd just scrape into A

Thanks for your help. By the way, here's my first response of Question 2 GCSE English AQA. I'm not asking for a deep analysis mark or anything but i just want to see what YOU think this paragraph is worth (grade wise).

Firstly, I can see that the Picture shows 2 men who seem to be neutral where the text states:
"Hundreds of people heading for the isle were left stranded for up to 10 hours".
This implies that although the image seems to portray the man is happy, it could mean he is emotionally frustrated in his current circumstance as he may be only showing happiness in front of the camera. Showing how he is hiding away his current, terrible, living zone.
The effect on the readers mind may be a sense of emotional sadness and white lies as the picture and text technically contradict one another.

What Grade do you recon this would be?

PS. AQA EXAM BOARD.
I did WJEC but my courswork was 40% and i got a C this.
In my exam i got an A* and a U (Don't have a clue why) and i got a B, so if you you get two A*'s you should come out with an A mabye an A* depending how many ums marks you get.

This happened in my literature i had 40% controlled assessments at a C and i got an A* full marks in my exams and came out with an A*.
