    Hey,
    I read on one of the forums on this website that if you get the full 20% in your coursework you only need about 64% for an A*. Can someone tell me how much I need for an 'A' please. Also if someone can give me a website where I can get the level thresholds, then that would be appreciated. Thanx

    I think you would need about 50% in the exam to get an A if you got full marks for the coursework.

    yeah, but to get 8|8|8 for coursework you have to go into A-level stuff... I don't know whether that would be using techniques that are learned at A-level not GCSE, or would it be doing "A-Level Standard" stuff, like something really complex and difficult (I heard that for the Investigation Coursework, figuring out a working 6-variable formula will get you 8 for at least solving... I did that but I worked it out logically which was easy rather than looking for sequences).

    Apparently, the grade boundary for A* is 22/24, so you need 8/8 in at least one area

    So what is the boundary for an 'A'. And also if you do get an A in the coursework, what percentage would I need for an A in the exam?

    i cudnt be bothered with coursework - got a B on it
    in the exam i got 76 and 74, which was an A (i did it a yr earlier).
    i think that yr it was 83 for an A*, 61 for an A.

    that was june 2002. im sure its gone down to about 54% for an A now (on the papers).

    In my case, I got an A* in maths after a 3-3-4 on both courseworks. I needed about 90% to get an A* with those marks, but I managed it.

    Someone in my class, who had 8-8-8 coursework, got an A overall with only 56% in the exam.
