    Well basicly i do AQA MATHS MODULAR. And for 2 of my courseworks (worth 10% each) i got very high A's. I did intermidiate module 1 and 3 (but i really wanted to do higher) and i got very high B's in them (as B is the highest u can get... total % for module 1 and 3= 30%). So then the last module was Module 5, which was the biggest as it was worth a full 50%. So i persuaded my maths teacher so much to let me do higher and well he gave in and said yes. So i worked my butt off as it was the biggest module as i was doing higher this time. From this, i was predicted an A in it... so summary so far:

    Module 1 = High B, Intermidiate.
    Module 3 = High B, Intermidiate.
    Module 1 + 3 = 30%

    Coursework 1 = High A
    Coursework 2 = High A
    Coursework 1 + 2 = 20%

    Module 5 (which i just did in June) = predicted A, Higher.
    Module 5 = 50%


    So heres the question: If i (fingers crossed) get that A in higher module 5, will i be able to get an A OVERALL? ????? Because i need that A to enter my preferred sixth form.

    I don't do Modular Maths, so the system is slightly different. Remember the grade boundaries are set post-marking depending on candidates responses to the paper and the relative difficulty of it compared to previous years. Perhaps you should look at last year's report (the latest one is fron November). Here is the link:

    http://www.aqa.org.uk/qual/gcse/math_b_exam.html

    Not much hope, but I hope it is useful. Perhaps someone following the same course as you would be better able to advise. With linear Maths [AQA], you do both 2 hour written papers at the end of the course at one level [i.e. Foundation, Intermediate or Higher) as well as 2 pieces of coursework worth 10% each.

    it is possible for you to get an A but it would mean you needing to get an A* in module 5. I dont think it wouold cause to much trouble if you got a b though
