    I got my coursework back today and my teacher has given me another chance to redo it if I want to but I don't know if it's worth it. I got Band 4 overall, so a C, but I think I can do better but I always leave things really last minute. Does anyone know if it's actually possible to pull that up to an A just with the exam, bearing in mind coursework is 40% of my AS?

    Thanks

    It's definitely worth it in my opinion! The marking seems to be relentless at AQA, so I wouldn't place much hope on the exam getting you those extra marks.

    Assuming you got a C at roughly 52/80, you'll need 108/120 in the exam to get an A. That's pretty tough, in my opinion!

    Yeah you're right, most aren't even getting the chance to re-draft in the other group. My UMS marks (just calculated on the website) are apparently 47. Do you possibly know how many UMS points you need to get an A overall? Why is it so hard to search for this stuff online?!

    Edit : Forget that, I found it haha :P Thanks for the advice too.

    In my first attempt, I got a band 4. I did it again (another question) and got a 6.(27/30). Remember to evaluate critics. I can help you if you give me the c/w title.

    Yeah, I was going to comment that once ours had been marked, that was it. Consider yourself lucky to get a second chance!

    Remember that your mark could go down when moderated by AQA as well, so give yourself the room for manoeuvre.

    That would be really great! Thank you for offering! I'll PM you.

    Yeah you're right, it would be a bit of a waste if I just left it to be honest. I'm just really wary about starting revision now too.
