    If I got a low C or even a low D in my coursework, would I be able to still get an A* overall. As I do extended, each exam (core, additional, and extended) will be 25% of my final grade.
    If I got really high A* (such as 90 or even 95%) in my exams, would I still be able to get an A*. I spoke to my science teacher and he said that my coursework grade would lower my A* because the coursework is a 1/4 so I would need to get 4 grades lower than an A* to move it to an A
    How many raw points (including the coursework) overall do I need to get for an A* in Chemistry A OCR. I tried to look on the mark scheme but the points are divided into coursework and exam.
    I really want an A*.
