    I got an F in my coursework, is it possible to get a C or B overall?
    English Language by the way
    AQA
    I have looked over you paper, you have done the following; • offers evidence that the text is fully understood makes perceptive connections and comments about concerns and issues raised in the text • offers appropriate quotations or references to support understanding and you have crossed linked it with your opinions first paragraph i would reward you the full 8 marks you have completed that band in what the examiner looks for • offers evidence that the text is fully understood • shows a detailed engagement with the text • makes perceptive connections and comments about concerns and issues raised in the text • offers appropriate quotations or references to support understanding second paragraph i reward you again the full 8 marks because.• offers a detailed interpretation of the effect of the headline • presents a detailed explanation and interpretation of what the picture shows and its effect • links the picture and the headline to the text with perceptive comments • offers appropriate quotations or references to support comments third paragraph i would reward you 7 because you have shown offers perceptive explanations and interpretations of the thoughts and feelings expressed • employs appropriate quotations or references to support ideas but you didn't engage me as much fourth paragraph I never give students full 16 marks unless their work is perfect no grammatical mistakes and poor engagement however, you have proven me wrong! and you achieved that you offer a full and detailed understanding of the texts in relation to language • analyses how the writers have used language to achieve their effects • offers appropriate quotations in support of ideas with perceptive comments • focuses on comparison and cross-referencing in relation to language between the texts have shown fifth paragraph you have shown communicates in a way which is convincing, and increasingly compelling • form, content and style are consistently matched to purpose and audience, and becoming assuredly matched • engages the reader with structured and developed writing, with an increasingly wide range of integrated and complex details • writes in a formal way, employing a tone that is appropriately serious but also manipulative, subtle and increasingly abstract HOWEVER you didn't linguistic devices, such as the rhetorical question, hyperbole, irony and satire, in a consciously crafted way that is increasingly sustained so I would mark it 8 marks in total Paragraph 6 you had shown • uses complex grammatical structures and punctuation with success • organises writing using sentence demarcation accurately and good English but again you have given me lots of facts which didn't engage me so I would mark you down for that so 7 marks overall you had achieved 54 marks which grades to..... an A GRADE CONVERTED USING OFFICAL GRADE BOUNDARIES OF THAT YEAR 1 MARK OFF AN A* WELL DONE

    If I did get an A in my exam in 2012 AQA English and a F in my coursework what would of i got overall?
