    Hey I was wondering if one of you guys could fix my confusion. So I thought that the total language coursework was out of 90 because I remember doing assesments worth, 20,20 20 and 30 respectively. But looking on the aqa website it seems as though the coursework was worth a total of 80 marks. How does this work because I thought I was on a mark of 77/90 but judging by the ums I got on my results sheet I only got 69/80. Could someone explain where my mistakes have come from?

    Creative Writing is worth 30 over two pieces. You then have Of Mice and Men worth 30 and Spoken Language Study worth a further 20 marks, making your 80.

    But in one of my creative writing I thought I got 17/20 and in the other I got 14/20, have I made a mistake somewhere?

    I'm not too sure... Mine also get graded out of 20 but I know the overall mark is only 30.

    You add the marks for content on both pieces of creative writing and average the accuracy over both pieces, and then add them together.
