    What did everyone put for the tonality of "fire" in Grace? I put major but I might be wrong, I just sung the interval in my head and it sounded like a major key
    Wasn't the question about harmony, not tonality?

    This is from last year, and I am very confused. According to this, if u get full marks in performing and composing (60/60 each), you get 180 UMS. To get A* overall, you need a 'cash in' of 270 UMS, so you technically only need 90UMS, which was last year a mid B. But our teachers told us, that if you get A* in both of ur compositions and performances, you need to get a high A to get A* overall.

    Help me if I'm wrong.
    my teachers told me that as well but I think they're just saying that to push us. I just want an A though, not an A* but thanks anyway!

    You have 90 for performance, and 57 for composition so 147 in total for coursework.

    If I got about 43/60 for both composition and performance, what did I need to get in the exam to get a B?

    I know my composition and performing simply because the exam board hasn't asked my school for the entire collection (meaning that they have not changed the marks) and the exam is just a guess just trying to work out what I might get

    Really? My school says they're not allowed to tell us anything whatever happens with moderation.

    43/60 + 43/60 gives you 86/120, which can be simplified to 43/60, so out of the 60% you've covered so far, you have got 43%. To get a B, you need 70% overall, so out of the remaining 40%, you need 27. This means you need 27/40 in your final exam, which is equivalent to 54 out of 80 marks in your final exam for a B overall and you would need 37/40 in your final exam for an A, which is equivalent to 74 out of 80 Marks. So an A grade will be tricky to get, but a B grade is certainly possible. (For everyone else reading this, that is how you work it out. Of course UMS could change the marks one or two each way if the test is too easy or too hard, but this "shall be revealed" on results day)

    You always do better than you think, don't worry, I'm sure you will get at least 54/80 which is a B overall

    what about for me? I got 54/60 compositions and 60/60 performance, quite worried I wont get an A*
    (Original post by Kxjzh)
    You actually only need 58!! I've just used the edexcel mark converter to get your UMS marks, and then used the grade boundaries and you would need 94ums marks which is 58 raw marks! I hope you've got it!

    I believe you need 65 marks to get the A*! I think so anyway!
