Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    Im taking AQA GCSE French and I got a high C in my 60% coursework. I want to get a B but Im not sure how many marks I need in the Reading & Listening exams to be able to get a "B".

    Im better at the Reading Exam than I am at the Listening -.-*

    I tried to work out the amount of UMS points and marks I would need but I failed bc idk. Can you help me out please?

    Will I be able to get a B?

    Also do you have any tips bc im struggling on how to get better at French R&L exams ;-; Thank you!!

    To get a B you would need 210/300 UMS.

    For the coursework (if I add speaking and writing together) if you got a C you would have between 108 and 126 UMS.

    If let's say you had 120UMS in your coursework, you would need 90UMS overall (so 45UMS each) in your listening and reading, which is a high B, so that's about 26/40 in both R&L.
