B+ on controlled assessment, good or bad??? (please help) Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I got really high B's, (a mark or two off an A) on my controlled assessment,
    can I still get an A overall?
    how hard will it be?

    and what happens if I get a high B in the exam also?

    Please help!!! kind regards

    how it works is how everything equals out. for example. C C B= C=high C| B B C= low B| B B B= high b| C C C= high c|and it all depends on the marks aswel. in core science higher i got C in paper 1 1 mark of a B| in paper 2 i got a B ( 1 mark on a B) and a C in my controlled assessment and it averaged out at a C. in your case you need at least 2 A's and a B

    How hard it'll be depends on how highly weighted the controlled assessment is. For example science it is usually 25%, but for English it's usually 50% for the sum of the assessments. Even if it's 50%, you should only have to make up a few marks over an A in the exam to get an A overall.
    If you get a B in all controlled assessments and exams, you will get a B.
