Hi
my coursework is worth 20% and to be honest, I really don't think I can get over.a c/ b grade because I just suck at it for some reason. I get high a's in the mock papers for the examd though. Will the coursework affect my grade significantly? If so, please give me some advice??!

if you get 70% in your c/w (which is the border of B/C) worth 20% and average 85% (a mid range A) across your other 80% of the course that is:

70 + (4 x 85) = 410

410 divided by 5 = 82

82% would get you an A

obviously the lower your coursework mark is the higher you will have to score in your exams and it's better to give yourself some leeway in the exams in case you have a bad day
