    I found out my English Literature result today to discover I have got a C overall after getting an A in the coursework element (64 marks) LT2 and a D in the actual exam (68 marks) LT1. I was wondering if anyone could give me the actual mark scheme or tell me how many marks I was off a C in my exam and how many marks into an A I was in my coursework.

    Assuming the marks you're referring to are the UMS marks printed on your results sheet, the coursework component will be out of 80 and the exam component out of 120.

    For LT1, you needed 72 UMS to get a C, so you were 4 UMS off (which probably equates to 2 raw marks).
    For LT2, you needed 64 UMS for an A, so you would have been exactly on the A boundary.

    Hope that helps.

    Sorry this has nothing to do with your question, but what texts did you do for your coursework by the way?
