    Spanish was the first exam I struggled with and I am so scared I will get a bad grade on results day.

    But I have 60% A* coursework but that will be a waste if I end up getting a D or C
    If it helps, my coursework was a B and in my mocks I got a D and an E in my papers, but altogether I got a C, so maybe with A* coursework and if you didn't do well in the papers it could still add up to a B or an A which is still amazing!

    There is no chance of that happening, cause if your CAs are at an A* (That's a minimum of 162 UMS points in the bag) which means 18 UMS away from C. I highly doubt that you've picked up only 18 UMS across the two exams cause that would give you less than a F

    Do you think it would still be possible to get a 'B' or 'C' grade overall if ive got 60% 'A' coursework and possible C (hopefulyy not lower than that :/) grades in my exams?

    You'd scrape a B if you got the bare minimum for each area

    don't stress! I did my english lit last year, in year 10, and I thought I had done awfully because I got what the unseen poem meant totally wrong. Turns out I actually got an A* in the poetry paper! You just need to be able to back up your interpretation, even if it's wrong as long as you use evidence and explanation, you'll do great

    I'm going to an art college haha XD i know loads of people see it as a waste but personally i feel that i will end up being more likely to be able to do what i want in life and i wouldnt be able to deal with the stress i only need 4 Cs to get in since the offered me a place based on my art skills but yeah i guess i still have pretty high standards for myself for these test, would be a shame for all my hard work to go to waste
