Does anyone have any idea how many marks you'd need roughly overall for an A? I feel more prepared for paper 1 than I do Paper 2, so I have a feeling this will be my downfall.


I'm unsure as to what mark I got on the coursework, I just know that I got an A* on it.

Any guidance would be appreciated. how nervous is everyone else for the exams?

It's about 80% but the exam board is quite generous I think so you might be able to drop about 15-18 marks to still get an A I think? It's generally hard exam apparently so it's easier to do well!!
I'm doing this exam too I'm really nervous just trying to do loads of exam questions that seems to help

I got 40 on the coursework which was 1 mark into an A

Don't know whether this is any help...

For the coursework we did Women's Rights which was surprisingly interesting. It was marked out of 40, I got 38 which was a A* but just about I think, 37 should just scrape an A*.

As for the exam, I think they take the top ten per cent of the A's and give them A*'s so to be certain, you'd probably need about 90% overall for an A*. 80% should get you an A, you just gotta learn it as best you can, hope the questions suit you and the cohort across the nation struggles.
