I am taking AQA GCSE French. I have a very high "C" on coursework, yet want to get a high "B"/"A" overall. If I get two A*s on my R&L, will I get an "A" overall?

I have been practicing French papers. Yesterday I got two As and today one mark off an A*. They were listening. I am good at listening but **** at reading.

Speaking controlled assessment is worth 30%
Writing controlled assessment is worth 30%
Reading and listening exams are 20% each.

The mark you have for speaking may be changed by moderation, the writing mark is only your teacher's estimate, but if they are both high Cs, that would give you about 62/90 on each = 124/180.

To get an A overall you need 240/300, so you would need 116/120 on the exams. So, theoretically possible but (sorry) highly unlikely.

How can you get something out of 120 on the exams when the foundation tiers together are out of 70 and for the higher tier 80?

What are the marks do I need for a C overall in French? For June 2012, I know I got C's in my speaking and maybe B's in my writing and i'm obviously not sure about what I got in the reading and the listening.

The raw mark is converted to a UMS mark and that is the result you get. The max UMS for each exam is 60. (The max you can get if you did the Foundation tier will be 41 or 42).

You need at least 180/300.

I got a high 'c' in my coursework n sat the foundation paper which was easy peasy, so probs getting a high 'c' in my exams worth 40%. Any chance I could get a 'b'?

Not really, if you have got Cs in all your units then you will get a C overall.

Really but what if they were all high c's and only few marks of a b for the coursework, is there no chance, depending on how well I did on the exams?

Can I ask about my chances too?

Speaking 1-High A
Speaking 2-High B (Damned teacher stopped me mid answer on my best question, I shall never forgive you...)
Writing 1-Two marks off A*
Writing 2-One mark off A*

If I now got an A* in one paper and an A in the other (because the higher listening was ridulously hard), what grade would I get?
