    I'm not sure what the boundary is but because modules and coursework make up 50%, it should fluctuate due to how you did in those. If you got an A* overall for your modules and coursework then you don't need to score as many marks in the exams to get an A*. But yeah, I'm not too sure, so maybe someone else can clarify.

    How did you find the exam? I thought modules 7-12 was actually better than last weeks, which is strange.

    I thought biology was way easier than last week's, chemistry was much harder (and that's normally my best), and both physics were easy. I've got 48 out of the 50% available so far so maybe i do stand a chance even if i screwed up!
