    So... I am not that great at business and i'm aware that i'm not going to do amazing in the exam i will probably only get a D. My coursework however is 48/60 marks so i's assume that thats relatively high. My plan was to allow my coursework to carry me through the exam helping me push my overall grade from a D to at least a C. Howeve, i've been told multiple things by different people saying that your coursework cant be 2 or more grades higher than your exam grade or your coursework will just become disregarded. This has left me concerned as i dont know if this rule does apply or if it is infact a load of crap.

    If anyone could help me clear up this situation and shed some light on the matter it would be much appreciated. Keep in mind that my business GCSE is based around OCR, A242 Applied Business.

    Hi there , your coursework is 60 percent of your overall grade , and wort
    H 120 umps whereas the exam is 40 percent is 80 ums.Your coursework is around 100 ums so , so you would need to get 20 umps in the exam to get C which I think is just a few marks, if you get a D Grade you will probs get B overall

    So is it ok for your coursework to be significantly higher than your exam grade or will it become void?

    How did your exam go ? I found it really easy , it was mostly just me inserting never ending giberish which the examiner has to award marks to . If I don't get my A/A* I will kill my self.
