    What points did you guys make for question 1?
    First bullet point was mainly about Al and his concern and dedication and about the hotel I just wrote that it's in a remote area. For second bullet point I wrote and mr head complaining and bullying and seeming unimpressed and all and for last bullet point I could just find 2/3. I wrote about taking care of my husband after his accident, taking care of myself cuz of neck sprains and about the gardener point

    That was the worst one and plus I couldn't finish it so there wasn't much analyzing. What quotes did you choose?

    The way you calculate it is by multiplying your speaking and listening mark by 0.843.

    E.g (0.843 x 29) = 24.447

    Then you add that mark to your coursework

    E,g 49 + 24.447 = 73.447 (Rounds down)

    The Grade boundaries then are C: 76 B: 86 A: 96 A*: 106

    So for this individual to get an A* it is 33 marks
    I got 46/50 for cw and 17/20 for s & l. What marks do i need for an A and A*?

    Think you need about 25 for an A but it depends on grade boundaries they can change every year so it could be higher or a lot lower
