    It really depends on the UMS, which can worked out if you know how many marks you got all together out of 80.

    I got 70/80 in my controlled assessments and usually the A* mark is 72/80

    So can't really say..

    They are really important, equating to 40% of your actual grade

    NOTE: I'm presuming your exam board is AQA.

    Oh thats what confused me as I did english language with CIE and it was out of 50 not 80 - it makes sense now.

    Also, do you know what % the CA for lit is worth (AQA) as I'm hoping my 38/40 will pull up my expected lower marks on the papers.

    Thats really frustrating! I wish it was higher..
    What makes up the other 75% because that can't be equally split over the other two papers?

    I want to be a businesswoman who likes doing Coursework and writing essays. I want to study business studies and English because I like doing essays and talking about the local business and the local statements by the facilities. I will work on the courses and the mini projects that I will learn this is because I like doing exams it is important to us. For English the level that I am going to have A*s and for the Art and design that I will have a C*s in my levels. The thing is important to me is I want to study about the business and I like doing revision in science, English and also I like doing written and typing coursework in the computer or by hand for example I can write a essay and I can type letters in the computer skills. The thing that I will be given is the newspaper articles, my folder to keep written paperwork in, exam papers and finally line paper and essays.
