    I'm on AQA for Spanish AS, I'm struggling and I want to drop it after this year and continue with my other three subjects but I'm worried about what grade I'll get this year

    In reading and listening I've been averaging around 75% which I think is roughly a B but obviously it depends on the mark schemes
    In the essays I haven't got anything higher than a D
    In speaking I'm really struggling so I'm thinking maybe a D (possibly a low D)

    What would this average out at? If I manage to pull up the essays to a C and get roughly the same as I'm currently getting in reading and listening, will that make up for a D in speaking and average out at a C?

    It all comes down to UMS. There are big UMS differences between say a low C and a high C and these differences are important when the overall grade is worked out.
