    How do you achieve a merit or distinction in them. For example : if I had completed a PASS and MERIT Task but I had 3 other PASS tasks not done what grade would I get ? Another example : If I had completed a DISTINCTION and MERIT task but I hadn't completed 2 other Pass tasks what grade would I get ?and How do you work that out ? My teachers hasn't really explained it properly do you have to do all ?

    You don't need to get all DISTINCTION to get a DISTINCTION overall I'm not sure about the exact numbers your teacher should explain to you what you need to get DISTINCTION

    When I did mine in sports science about 5 years ago, it was the case that the lowest mark determined the overall grade for that specific module. So if you were to get D, D, D, M, P, it would be likely that you would receive a pass overall. If you get one bad grade in a set of distinctions, though, it is possible that you may be able to redo the grade if it will have a significant outcome on your overall course classification etc. though. But this seems a bit arbitrary, and cannot be relied upon.

    If you have not done 3 Pass tasks then you would fail the unit. You MUST achieve ALL passes to Pass. All passes plus all merits to get a Merit and all P,M and Distinctions to get a Distinction for each individual unit. There are new rules this year regarding resits. Speak to your tutor to ensure you know exactly what must be done. You can also get full information from Edexcel website at;
