    How many marks do I need to get an A for the GCSE English Language Paper (Edexcel)

    nobody knows or will know as they need to mark the papers first

    I hope it's low lol, my courseworks aren't too bad they're A I think

    I also have a template which was given to us by our head of english as he used to be an edexcel examiner. It literally gets you in band 5 lol.

    This is because, it's perceptive and it ensures you address and include the top band 5 techniques such as superficially being perceptive and what not lol

    The number of marks depends on how well you did in the coursework because that is worth 40% and the exam is worth 60% of the grade and it is the combined total of points that give the overall grade. For example I got UMS 75 for my assessments so to get a C I only need to get another 18 marks from the exam and to get a B I need 29. So to get an A I would probably need to get about 40 out of the 64 available in the exam and an A* would probably be around 50.
