I got 96% in my geography controlled assessment, before moderation, what would I need in the exams for a B or C?

Are you AQA, I got 98% in my coursework.
If you get a mid/low C in both exams human/physical you can get a B overall. You could get D's in both and get a C. If you wanted an A, high B's in both should be aimed for. Good luck.

For OCR Geography B (the one I am doing) coursework that would be what 58 out of 60?? Then the SDME exam tomorrow is out of 81 and the key themes exam on the 3rd of June is out of 99 (I think) so overall it is out of 240, for definite . Based on last years grade boundaries overall you need 216 for A*, 192 for a A, 168 for a B and 144 for a C. You already having 58 marks obviously means that you have given yourself a very good head start. For a low B, you need at the minimum say 56 in tomorrows exam and 60 in the key themes - this will get you exactly 168 so for a safe B I would aim for 70 marks in tomorrows exam as it is generally easier and 50/60 in the key themes? Then for a C you will need say 46 marks in tomorrows exam and 40 in the key themes to just get a C but for a definite safe C I would say aim for 56 marks tomorrow and 50 in the key themes! Hope this help and isn't too confusing
