    I just finished my EMPA for physics AS, pretty disappointed. I think I got 40/60 overall.

    Am I still able to get an A? The EMPA is 20% of the overall grade.

    What % do you need to get an A in AQA AS Physics?

    Thanks feeling pretty bad now

    You only lost a third of 20% of your course, which is only 6.66%, and you can lose 20% and still get an A, so no you can still get a very good A.

    On the other hand, your inability to do the basic bit of maths needed to work this out make me think you'd be lucky to get a D so.

    If you can't calculate whether you can still get an A or not - then, it isn't looking promising.

    firstly, stop feeling sorry for yourself, you are not screwed

    you can get an A overall (240/300) so was you need to do is make it up in the exams, so get mid A's in both papers (closer to 90% then 80%)

    You need 200/240 of the available UMS left to get an A.

    Which is 83.33% combined average in the two exams left.

    are you sure thats how it works?

    because 40/60 = 66.6%

    83.33+83.33+66.6 / 3 = 77.8% =/

    The exam isn't the same weighting as the coursework,
    He means, 83.33*0.4+83.33*0.4+66.6*0.2. That'll give you the average which would be 80% I think.
