Does anybody know how A-levels and B-units are marked? I'm doing two B-units (equivalent to A-levels), and I need 70% in both in order to get into the uni I've been accepted at. So how does this work? I have to do 5 pieces of course work (which is 40% of the final mark), and a final exam in June (which completes the remaining 60%). Straight forward so far. Right. Does that mean that in order to obtain an overall 70%, I have to achieve 70% in all pieces of course work, and 70% in the final exam? I thought so until I put it another way. I'm currently averaging 65% on my course work. But if the course work only accouts for 40% of the overall mark, that would mean I have already achieved 26%. So in order to make up the remaining 44%, does that mean I would only require 31% in the final exam?
I know this is mega confusing but a bit of clarification would be a great help!

No because that would be 57% what you would need is 44% in your exam because 60%+40%=100% Although aim for the best marks that you can get on both that way you have less pressure when you go into your exam, and a better chance of passing it.
It's the total that the Uni asked for so it is the whole total that you will be judged on.Last edited by turbochargedk; 11-04-2006 at 20:37.
