    I've got two A's in my writing coursework and two A*'s for my speaking coursework would I be able to get an overall A* grade for my French or would I have to get something like 100% in my reading and listening exams?!!

    No you wouldn't. I'm in the same situation as you, I have A*s in writing and A*s in speaking.

    As you may (or may not) your paper score is converted into UMS points. 300 is the maximum UMS points you can get and you have to get 270+ to achieve an A* overall, so this leaves a little bit of room to allow some mistakes.

    The reading and listening papers are out of 40 marks, so to achieve an A* at the end, you should be looking to get around 35/40 or higher in each paper.

    Hope this helps you
    Good Luck!
