    35/40 35/40 35/50 5/10 and 25/30


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    So your 25/30 will be converted into out of 25 which will be 20/25. This number will be added to the coursework that's out of 50 so 20 + 40 = 60 so you would need 46/50 for an A* according to last year june 2015 boundaries and 36/50 for an A so not too bad.

    Problem with me is I describe instead writing in all the good facts. As in I feel like I only really said a few points where I could have said so many more ugh
    Same here I feel like half my writing was actually how Maria was feeling instead of the points

    lol i really struggled to create an effect out of mirage - i had no clue what it meant, along with a few other words. maybe i need to work on my vocab
    i remember mirage as when in deserts people can hallucinate water and stuff because ive seen it in films so i just made it relevent to the context - dont worry though, my vocabulary is extremely rusty too. i don't think i did enough for an A after all that work oops. how did you find it?

    For 15 bullet points I put these:
    1) 30% thing
    2) global starvation
    3) loss of healthy foods
    4) no need to pay farmers to find alternative less efficient ways of pollinating
    5) 500 medicines thing
    6) a bees health tells us a lot about the environments health
    7) pesticides distort their behaviour fatally
    8) local weather systems threaten them
    9) change in weather threaten them
    10) transporting beehives to diff countries cause them to stress out
    11) Increase in bees in the city will lead to less nectar available for wild bees
    12) immune system becoming less efficient
    13) fungal infections/known bee viruses
    I had two more but forgot what I wrote!

    Do you think this is correct?

    Also for the summary I developed some points such as medicines has used honey since the egyptian times so medicines would not be as advanced as it is now if we didn't have honey. I also wrote that loss of healthy foods will lead to a regress in health in the world.

    Will this mark me down?

    How did u work out wht u needed for an A* can you help me?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    To get an A*, you need 106/125 so add your average writing coursework mark and speaking&listening mark.

    Then divide 106 by 125 and multiply it by 130 (the coursework, s&l and exam total 130) and subtract the total of coursework and s&l mark to get your exam mark needed for an A*. Is this explanation too confusing?

    Yes I can tell you what you need to get in the exam if you know your coursework marks.

    But lets say you got like 47/50 on average on the writing coursework and your s&l is 26, then you would need at least 27 in the exam to get an A overall.

    It has been a pleasure to host this thread. I hope everybody found it useful. BTW guys, did you notice the error in Q3 where they stated the importance of honeybees. They forgot to include humans. It may have an effect on some people although I think it really didn't have an effect on me but that Was unacceptable.

    I don't think that's right because I need 48/50 for an A* but this method says I need 52/50 lol which isn't possible!
