    I just did my AS English with OCR this summer, but am worried that I may have messed up my Passage to India section and maybe my Chaucer section too. However, I got a really high mark for my coursework (88/90), so does anybody know how much I would need to score on the exam papers to get an A? I would calculate it myself but my maths is bad... :p:
    And speaking of Passage to India, did anybody find the extract we had to write on seriously seriously long?

    Depends on what the conversion rate from raw marks to UMS marks are this year.
    I know that for my exam board, it doesn't change an awful lot... so working on the presumption that 1 raw mark = 1 UMS mark:

    You need 240 to get an A for this year, you have 88. So you now need 158/210 or about 75% on the rest! Good luck, and get a calculator.

    Gasp! 75%! The way I calculated it I'd only need to get 52% or something *blushes*
    And yes, that is why I definitely definitely need to get a calculator.
    And also why I do not do AS Maths either.
