    ohh u retaking them, i think??? coz i am too
    well... depends on ur exams too coz if u got a strong C in ur exams then u more likely to achieve a low/ middle B
    or if u achieve a low B in exams then u can surely achieve B overall
    or if u achieve high D then u will ending up achieving a high C or maybe few marks off a B
    n don't forget that u can ask for the remark if they are very close
    hope that helps

    Not sure about IGCSE. Ask your teacher about the specification as it will contain UMS grade boundaries.

    So, as an example in GCSE science, out of 400 UMS, you need 360 for an A*. The controlled assessment is out of 100 UMS. So if you get 100, you only need a high A average to get an A* overall. Ask your teacher.
    I did OCR ENGLISH LITERATURE AND LANGUAGE, and not iGCSE.

    btw, you can easily get an A. iGCSE is easier than normal GCSE.

    Because you do more controlled assessments than exams. If you screw up in the last exam, it won't affect your grade as much a normal GCSE would.
