    I got 83/108 in the English Mock, but we had paper 1 from 2007 and paper 2 from 2008, so they had to give a best fit for the grade... 83 worked out at an A.

    Paper 1: 41 - 18/27 Media & 23/27 written
    Paper 2: 42 - 17/27 section 1 & 25/27 poem

    Of mice and men.
    All I could find...

    Mark given: Section A: 20, Section B: 24, QWC: 3 = 47/66 - Grade A (A* was at 53, so 6 off)

    Does anybody know how much the coursework's worth? In percentage? Becuase I was told that coursework in english literature was worth 20%, but I'm not sure that it's correct...

    For AQA A English Lit, the coursework is worth 30%, the exam is worth 70%
    And are the grade boundaries THAT HIGH? You can only lose 6 marks to get an A*?! Crazy!

    Thanks!
    And I'm a little worried about the grade boundaries too, surely we're allowed to lose more than just 6 marks??

    I think it would be fantastic to achieve an A* in the English subjects for anyone because if the grade boundaries are so high you'll feel like a genious when you achieve it!
    I hope everyone who wants an A* gets one and I hope you're all ecstatic on results day I hope the same happens to me
    Well done to all of you Let's all have our finger's crossed that the grade boundaries are low and achieve the grade we all deserve!
