English Literature and Language are my favourite subjects, and my main interest and I hope to continue this onto A Level. I am working and aspiring for an A grade in both and was wondering what grade is needed in the actual exam to go with my coursework to get me the grade overall.

Okay so here are my coursework grades:
English Language (60% if I remember correctly)- A overall
English Literature (25%) - A

In my resent MOCKS I only achieved a grade B in language and am wondering whether this would be enough to overall get myself an A. And the same for Literature.

Thanks in advance.

If you're on AQA, dependent on your A, you need either (240-107) 133 Ums to as much as (240-96) 154 ums / 180.

An A* is 162/180 whilst an A is 144/180 UMS, so for English Langauge you need anywhere from a Mid-low B to a Mid A. That wold be about 50-57 in the exam I'd guess
