    For Theology I gained a C in one the papers which I was surprised at as i thought I did a good job, which took my grade to a B overall.
    If I gained 4 UMS more on the paper via a remark I would have a B boundary, which should average an A overall for the paper.


    2. English Literature. Coursework was a B and exam was a B. I therefore got a B overall. On the exam, I was 10 UMS away from an A boundary which should have averaged an A overall.

    Thanks if you could give your opinion would be great.

    Worth a try for Theology but not for English - you're only 10 off the C grade.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm unsure of what you mean for English though?

    I was a little unsure of what you meant as a couple of time you said paper when I think you meant AS (or A2). so I may have misunderstood you.

    Assuming this is AS, then the AS grade boundaries are:
    160 or more - A
    140-159 - B
    120-139 - C

    If you are 10 off an A then you are also 10 off a C.

    19 September, though your school may set a slightly earlier internal deadline.
