    Just been doing a bit of C4 revision, and i am getting more and more worried. I cant seem to do any of the questions! I've just forgotten everything, i should have concentrated less on the other modules...

    Anyway, to the question. If i got 100% for C1, M1, M2, 95% for C2 and 85-90% for C3, what percentage would i need (very roughly) in C4 to get an A overall?

    If, as you say, you get:
    100 in C1,M1,M2.
    95 in C2.
    85 in C3.

    You will need (80x6)-(100x3)-95-85=0 in C4 :rolleyes:
    I wouldn't advise you to test that though, just in case you don't get what you predict.
    I'm sure you can get at least 50% in C4.

    however u can flunk a whole subject if u get a U in any of your modules, so you basically need to aim for an E, which is 40%

    don't quote me on that though, i think it may depend upon the exam board.

    I heard about that. I think it might be an edexcel policy.

    It may sound difficult atm but when u read the method of how things are done and try some questions, it will gradually come back.

    Try not to panic

    Someone told me you have to get at least a D (50/100) on each module or they don't give you the award. I'm doing AQA computing and my computing teacher hadn't heard anything about it, which makes me think it's an edexcel policy.

    Having said that, I got a D in chemistry last year and that was with a U in unit 2 and that was edexcel, so perhaps it's just a maths thing? Or just an A-Level policy and not an AS policy?

    How can it be that you don't get an award without a D in each module? How on earth would they give someone an E grade if that were so?

    Come to think of it, it might only apply to people getting A's. I think if you're getting an A, you need at least a D in every module.

    Seems like a funny bloody rule.

    But I can believe that it is true as exam boards are funny bloody outfits.

    Anyway: D = 50/100

    I am sure anyone who has worked through the C4 text book can get at least 50% if not more like 65.
