    Thank you very much!

    What do you think the raw mark out of 80 will be for an A?

    Also, are you doing any preparation or A2, if so what are you doing?

    Had a quick look and I call it to be :

    63/80 for an A
    57/80 for a B
    51/80 for a C
    45/80 for a D

    Hi. Sorry unfortunately I cannot as I have now finished for the year, and I don't think my teacher actually had a copy of IT3. Try asking your teacher for a copy of it, they are now accessible via the secure site for which they should have a login if they don't have a paper copy.

    Hi, what is your UMS for the exam and coursework combined?
    I had 80/80 for the coursework and 82 in the exam which is a total of 162 which is an A.

    In the exam however I had a high C (one off a B)

    I had 80ums in coursework
    With 99ums in exam

    Making for 179/200 which I am sort of happy with (I'm a perfectionist). I know I was the only person anywhere near an A from my school, let alone actually getting the A.

    You're a lucky lady. You deserve it after suffering last year though.

    Did you get A* overall?

    Depends on if you think you can handle the additional workload. If you think you'll be able to get more UMS by just forgetting about it and smashing a2 then that's up to you. If you got A high C, there is definitely potential for you to pick up some considerable extra ums by resitting.

    It's all about your composure. IT3 does tend to have higher boundaries, indicating that it would probably be that little bit easier to smash with hard work.

    Consider that if you leave it as it is, and you smash the database IT4 coursework with 80ums, then you will need only 86ums for the IT3 exam, which is a low B in most cases.

    Is it doable to get the A overall in your circumstances? Yes

    With the right practice and making sure you get as much UMS as you possibly can in the coursework? Absolutely.

    The A* is even possible for you if you can secure 90% of the 200ums in A2, since by this point you would have surpassed the A boundary.

    Eg: 80ums in coursework (100%) and 100ums in exam (low A, 83%)
    Or any other combination totalling up to 180 ums.

    Good luck.

    I was the only one from my school with an A too!
    Well done!
    One girl had a B but the rest had D's from a U in the exam and full marks in the coursework
