    Hi,

    I attained a B last year for AS in English lit and I really want an A overall,
    My final draft for my A2 coursework was an A.
    However, today I found out it went down to a B after it was moderated (3 marks off an A)

    So is it possible?
    some advice will be greatly appreciated

    thanks

    Which exam board are you with? The exam boards have information online so if you add up all your marks from AS and your coursework you can see how many you need to reach the A boundary.

    ^^This. It really depends on your overall UMS thus far and how much you are off an A atm.

    As above. If you add up your UMS from AS, then look online at past boundaries to estimate how many UMS the coursework mark will convert to, you can then subtract this total from 320 (what you need from 400 to get an A overall) to see if this is realistic.
