It depends on which exam board your school has chosen, is it AQA or CIE?

It is CIE. Im doing the same course. Frankly, you would need full marks to get an A*, for an A, I would aim for 40's in the extended paper. What are your exact marks for writing and speaking out of 50 and out of 25, so I can give you a better estimate based of grade boundaries.

Whatever you need, best of luck for the 5th May - doing the same exam too

Okay, with a 36 in the writing and 26 in the speaking, here are the approximate marks you will need, obviously, aim for the highest - this is also based completely off of last years/average grade boundaries, and CIE can do what they want, meaning they are obviously subject to change.

So going into the exam you will have 21 or 22 marks, depending on how they calculate it, in the speaking (out of 25, since that's how they weight it), plus 36 marks. This means you will have 58 going into the GCSE exam already.
So based off of the typical boundaries, you will need - For a B: approx 24 marks. For an A: approx 35 marks For an A*: approx 46 marks.
So, all the grades are achievable on the 5th may, depending on your performance, and the boundaries obviously. I'm also taking this exam, and aiming for an A* - will need around 38-40 to get it! Good luck. If you are willing to revise with me/have any more questions about the exam, message me
