# A-Level Computing (AQA) watch

1. Hey i have 2 Exams, Unit 1 which is worth 60% and Unit 2 which is worth 40%. Grades Boundries are Comp1 - A- 80/100 B- 68/100 C - 56?

Comp1 - A - 80/100 B - 68/100 C - 56/100 D - 44/100 (Comp1 is out of 100 Marks)

Com2 - A - 44/60 B - 38/60 C - 32/60 D - 32/60 (Comp 2 Out of 60 Marks)

My Question is if i got 80/100 in Comp 1 but 35/60 in Comp 2 would that still give me an A overall due to Comp 1 being worth 60% and Comp 2 being worth 40%?.

My Second Question is it possible for Comp 2 to Bring my B In comp 1 Up to An A if i got an A in comp 2?
2. 60% of 80% = 48
40% of 58% (35/60 rounded up) = 23.2
= 71.2 /100 = B
to get an A you have to get 80/100 & 48/60. or above.

Isn't that Higher then what the Grade boundary states of Comp 1 - 80/100 For An A and Comp2 - 44/100?

How would it still even out if comp1 is worth more than Comp 2? Surely an A in Comp1 and a Low B in Comp2 would still give me an A overall due to Comp1 being worth more :s
