    I think it's a risky thing to say what you'll need to get an A* or an A or whatever.

    When I did it in November, I was predicted a sure fire A*- I had full marks in both Speaking and Listening and coursework.

    And yet I came out with a B.

    To be fair, everyone that didn't get A* in our school had to do a resit. That was 335 students.

    So if I got 47/50 for coursework and 30/30 for speaking and listening do I only need 29 marks for an A*?!
    No, 33.

    That happened to me... coursework put down and exam technique needed changed without informing teachers. Like with Q2 and the overall effect.

    Am I the only one who didn't do any coursework for English Lang? We did the 25% Speaking but none of this coursework everyone is talking about. We did coursework for English Lit though.

    I thought the husband remained in hospital until the day they would both leave evidently meaning that the wife would spend the rest of the days by herself? Because it stated that she needs to stop on Friday to pick him up from the hospital before the airport. Either that or I've just screwed this whole exam!

    You need 34/50

    47+25=72
    106-72 = 34
    Wait so I take 5 off my speaking?

    There are two roots for 0522, paper 3 and coursework count for the same thing (40%) like the exam (40%) and the speaking (20%). Some schools do coursework and some do paper 3. They assess the same things.

    Speaking is 20% and if a mark of 30 was given on the syllabus mark it would equal more than 20% so they divide it by 1.2 to get the mark for syllabus.

    So 30/1.2 = 25. This means that is counts for 20% of the 125.

    Oh ok that makes sense, yes we are doing paper 3 on Friday so we must be taking that route instead.

    That's how i interpreted it,
    I was unsure about this so sort of said things for both. I said that I hope to visit things like the animal sanctuary before my husband returns but I also said that I hope my husband is in a more positive mood when he returns from the hospital.

    I wrote it as if she would be alone for the rest of the holiday and the things she would do without him like visit the sanctuary and learn about bees, relax etc.

    Yep, I said that she would talk to the gardener about the bees and write in the journal to relax till Friday when she'll go to pick up her husband on the way to the airport.

    Man i talked about how what they did would determine what to do for the rest of the trip according to the husbands injury

    For example, I said we would take more excursions if the husband was fit enough

    SH*It

    Do u think i will be awarded some marks?
