    HI guys I know exam is tomorrow and I have read that course work and speaking exam make up 60%. how much exactly does the speaking make up.
    Because I got a B in my coursework, a D on my speaking and I am targeting a A for the exam what would you expect me to get if I managed to get the A in the exam tomorrow.

    Speaking is 20%
    If you managed an A tomorrow you would be sitting on a comfortable B.

    Thanks so much for the reply. Gonna aim for 42< in case my coursework gets moderate down. Don't think it will though, I feel as though I deserved my marks. Excited and nervous for tomorrow.

    each teacher's marking is moderated by Cambridge. if your teacher has marked your class harshly then it could go up/everyone else's go down. it is difficult to apply for a speaking remark because it is assessed internally.

    So then that means each and every speaking exam is re-watched and re-marked if needed?
