    Hi, not sure what year your in but I'm Y11, and so I'm not sure how many ums are available in your course, but if you get an A* in any other assessment then it will be possible to get one overall. I think.

    It would be helpful if you'd let me know what your ums was out of, but say it was out of 100ums, if you got 42% then that would be 84, which if that were the situation would be an A. But as I say, I could do with raw marks and when your final exam is before I can say anymore.

    Hope that helps.

    Right, so you have 84 ums. And you say that's 50% of the final grade, meaning that you need 160 for an A. Thus, you need 76ums (a mid B) for an A overall, or 96 for an A*.

    So its definitely possible if you out the work in. Just out of interest, what other subjects are you studying?

    What exam board? Sorry I though for Lit it was:

    25% Controlled Assessment
    35% Paper 1
    40% Paper 2

    I might be mistaken though

    Ahh I see, yeah as long as you do well in your final paper I see no reason why an A* isn't attainable
