    Hi,

    What grade do you think would I get for English language (AQA) this year?

    I got an A in the coursework, and think I did enough to get an A* in the exam.

    What grade would I most likely get?

    It completely depends on your UMS marks.

    I know I got 66/80 for the coursework which is 33% of the course. For the paper, based on my mocks, I believe I got about 63/80

    So:

    Coursework: 66/80 = 33% of total course
    Exam: 63/80 = 47.25% of total course

    Overall: 33% + 47.25% = 80.25%

    i dont think thats how it works... You got about 98 ums for controlled assessment. Depending on the grade boundaries 63 would defo be an A* however, i wouldn't know how high or low of an A* it would be but 63 looks about average middle A*... SO assuming you got a mid A* , you will have 171 UMS points for exam... so 98+171= 269 UMS (You need 270 for an A* overall) I think you're in for a shot an A* but if you do get it, it could only be by 2 or 4 UMS... OR VICE VERSA!!! good luck

    How did you manage to convert my raw mark to UMS? Is there an easy way of doing it?

    EDIT: did you use this link: http://store.aqa.org.uk/over/stat_pd...BOUNDARIES.PDF
