    Hello,

    In foundation, you are only limited to a C in the exam paper, however you can achieve as high as an A* in the coursework. You must have achieved a B or above in the coursework.

    And congratulations! Glad you achieved higher than expected, what an overwhelming feeling it is

    Thankyou it means alot, Yes i achieved a very top end B in my c/a's but could this be a mistake? I scored 282 UMS marks? The school is contacting the exams board to confirm my grade but I just feel a bit:/ Is it 100% possible?
