    We recieved our English L/L courswork results today. The folder is out of 80 marks, literary text (20), non-literary text (20) and commentary (40).

    I'm reasonably satisfied with my mark (64) with:
    19/20 literary
    16/20 non-literary
    29/40 commentary

    I'm disappointed in my commentary because I put alot of effort into it and the evaluative comment were all positive. I don't know where I lost 11 marks but I didn't contest because both my English Literature teacher and Language teacher agreed on the mark. I feel it was harsh to be honest.

    Anyway, my teacher cannot confirm what my grade will be because she hasn't been told the grade boundaries yet, but she said it's either a B or an A.

    What grade am I likely to get with 64/80? I'm hoping I get an A because 64/80 = 80% which is usually an A grade.

    And help will be appreciated. Thanks.

    probably an a, but who gives a **** really. you still did well whatever grade you got, and you have the exam to come which is what most of the grade is comprised of.

    Your coursework mark will probably get converted to a UMS mark anyway, and if this is the case then it'll depend on how well the rest of the country do in determining whether you receive a low A grade or high B grade. Also, the coursework mark only counts towards 40% of the final raw mark (I think) so even if you didn't manage to get an A in the coursework, you'd still have a good chance of bringing the mark up to an A if you do well in the written exam.
