    My second time on the old GCSE Maths

    AND I GOT A C!!!!!11111

    But could somebody explain this in more detail:

    "The mark you have received from AQA for your GCSE Maths does not appear to include your coursework marks, which should have been carried forward. The matter has been raised with the Examinations Board and we will confirm your result as soon as we receive further information from them."

    Now I'm sure my coursework came to a C grade, does this mean if indeed the marks were not included in the grade shown on my slip I could even get a B?!

    OK...How long do you think it will take them to 'investigate'? As it is as bad as waiting for results day waiting to find out if my grade will go up to a B!

    Also how would I go about requesting the actual marks I got in the Module 5 exam? As before they were always in College as raw marks, but on results day it just says C(c) on my slip!

    Thatys suprising. I got given the UMS marks for my module 5 AQA exam I got 257, which must have been a C/B as I got a B overall.

    You could possibly get a B depending on how high your C grade was. However, for the purpose of University, college or employment applications, they usually look for a ''C'', unless it is an entry requirement for a particular career or if you're applying for particulaly competative courses such as medcine. Your result suggests you have achieved enough marks overall on your exams alone to get a C. I think coursework is worth a max of 20% if you get full marks, so it just depends on what percentage of that 20 you got in it. Your coursework mark will then be added to it to give you an overall grade. Hopefully that makes sense! Your school should have a breakdown of your exam and moderated coursework marks. I did the Linear AQA GCSE in Maths, so I'm not sure how the modules work.

    OK i'll try and clarify a few things. AQA moduler is worked out like this:

    Module 1 = 11%
    Module 2+4 (coursework) = 20%
    Module 3 = 19%
    Module 5 = 50%

    I'll have to ask. I really want to know my actual marks for the module, as it is the one I always sucked on at High School (Angles, shapes etc - Urgh!)
